Are the best friendships in the past or in my future?

The topic of friendship has been on my mind lately. Well, more than lately, to be honest. For quite some time I’ve struggled with finding the balance of time with family and friends. And still it eludes me. My husband uses the term “work friends” when referring to those friendships I cultivate with the ones I spend the work day with, but rarely spend time outside of the eight hour day. This is not due to the fact those friendships hold no value but simply because my home life and schedule takes up all of my time away from work.
Over the years I have had some great “work friends,” some that I grew to refer as my BFF, but did not maintain those lines of contact once one of us moved on to greener pastures. I’ve had friendships in the past that have made it hard to trust other women and form a connection that all the greatest friendships of time have held. Because of this I find myself asking the question, have my best friendships already come and gone? And what can I do to prevent myself from falling into the same patterns with the friends I make in the future?
Do you have the kind of bond with your BFF that you want? Do you find it difficult to form tight friendships?
