From my perspective, the friendship between two or more people is something I like to write about, and I also have friends online that I do my best to spend some time with when I get the chance... :)

Dear Ann, I am touched by your comments as they reflect some of my own experiences. I don't think I have succeeded much in this area of friendship and I too am 60 years old this year. I think my deficit in making friends may have developed from a lack of trust in others and a feeling of not being worthy of their love. I have been limited by these internal pieces of my mind and heart all my life. I would like to develop close friends and have had opportunities but I have been unable to let my guard down and share myself with others. I am wondering if you have any thoughts on this matter? Or give any advice.

To Ann Harris from Detroit...Happy 60th birthday. There are many people who would love to be your friend. Don't be afraid to take the first step.
