New Friends vs. Old Friends
But the downside of those old friends is they have a tendency to get inside your head and dredge up all the old baggage that you may not want to face. If you need some advice, it can be a drag to have all the similar scenarios to your current situation brought up and rehashed. A new friend can focus on you in the moment, not in the context of your past, which can be helpful. A new friends brings new energy and new experiences to a relationship, introducing you to people you may not ordinarily hang out with, bringing you places you wouldn't ordinarily go and just generally expanding your horizons. But that's not to say you don't need those old friends. They're the ones who don't bat an eyelash when you need to cry it out or get really angry. As the old song goes, "Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other gold."
