Are you a Collector or Curator?

I am a Curator through and through..

I only want quality and I am willing to put in the time and effort to grow something seriously amazing. If things don't flow regardless of my attention they were never meant to be with me for life..

My mate Thommo is a Collector.

It takes a lot to be a true collector as if you want to maintain quality you need to check in regularly. He has a book that he says every month or so he gets to the ones he wouldn't normally come into contact with more than once a year and ensures he connects.

Collector and Curator of Friends that is..

It is a choice and Thommo says he likes to collect friends. It is easily done for him, he is a bloody funny bugger and he doesn't work so has more time than most to catch up and call his mates.

Me? I think I love my friends too much to have too many of them. It could possibly be that I am super busy so have less time to spread around but at the same time I know many people just as busy that have way more people in their life.. I like to have no secrets with my friends, to know them like my family know me and vice versa.

I know that because I 'curate' I have lost friends along the way that simply didn't feel I was there for them enough and in turn I felt really hurt by the fact they couldn't see I was doing my best and offering them everything I could at that time.

I trust that it is what it is supposed to be. That I will be surrounded by those I need.

The ones I lost I feel nothing for, my original feeling of failure towards them has changed to disappointment in them not me but I do still think about the idea of being a Collector.

Am I missing out?
