I am finding I have such a harder time making friends because I have less tolerance for the petty things. Life is so short, I want to invest my time in relationships I enjoy, instead of relationships that for which I feel obligated. For example, spending long days with my sister-in-law is an obligation, as she is a physically draining person. I also do not want to make friends with the neighborhood gossip. Does anyone else find this to be the case as they get older?
