The thing about true friends is that they are friends for life. They have your back. You don't have to call them every day, or even every week or every month to stay true friends. There's none of this, "What's the matter? Did I do something wrong" worrying stuff if you haven't talked for a while with true friends. You just know that you each have busy lives and that if they haven't written or emailed or called or stopped by it's only because they are so super busy, and not because they don't care or that they were offended over something trivial. True friends don't need high maintenance like that. The beauty with true friends is you might go for days, weeks, months, or years -- yes, even years before even seeing each other again. But, when you do, it isn't awkward at all. It's like you picked up right were you left off. You talk and laugh and share and maybe even cry and talk and share and laugh some more. And then, before parting, you hug, and you promise that you are going to try harder to get together more often. But, you know that if life gets busy and it doesn't happen, it's okay too. Because that's how true friends are. No judgments. No strings attached. Just true friendship. Just love. I love all of my true friends.
