Sometimes it's difficult to accept when a friend - especially a good friend - isn't 100% on board with a new development in your life that makes you happy. When you're excited about something, it seems only natural to desire a similar excitement from those with whom you share it. And when you get a cautious reaction, a hesitation, it can pop your proverbial balloon quickly and without warning. The faith can be there, both from you and your friend, that they will eventually accept the inevitable future... but that waiting can feel like torture. And the notion that everyone moves at different paces - both as we're experiencing new things in ourselves and as we're trying to embrace new things in our friends' lives - is a good one to remember.
