I have often wondered about the circumstances which brings friends together. The chance meetings, the right place at the right time factor, a conversation which started with “how are you doing”, or getting picked to be on a certain dodge-ball team. All of these happen like the roll of the dice right?
Many of my long time friends were met because of these roll of the dice circumstances. I was by lot, put on a certain dorm floor when I met two of the best friends I could have ever hoped for. I happened to be studying at the library the same time another group of medical students were and met a buddy who needed my friendship as much as I needed his. In first grade, during gym class, I happened to block an oncoming dodge ball from hitting another team mate and discovered a friend who constantly teaches me that laughter, especially at myself is the best therapy. Another right place right time happened to be a cooking store.
I don’t believe that they were in fact just chance meetings. I think that somehow we were destined to meet one another. There were gaps in my life before I had met these amazing souls. And now I don’t know what I would have done without them.
