I can count on my two hands how many close friends i have that I would trust with anything. It's not how many, it's who. I love my true friends with all of my heart, even though it has taken me way too long to realize who they are.
This is how you know you are on the right path for YOU...things are working out with ease. You stop struggling and experience inner peace, it does not mean everything has been resolved but you KNOW that you are living the life you want and you feel free.
