    Thanks, dashingscorpio! That was a very good analysis and conclusion. I like the analogy of learning to work with the seasons.

    connorj, I think this growing apart over time is the way many friendships die, also. Talking directly with the person is daunting, but I agree that it minimizes the potential for misunderstanding. Perhaps writing about what you will say first...

    Hi Iburmaster! Yes, I can see where keeping it to yourself would be the best solution especially if the friendship ended on bad terms. It's respectful of the nature of the original friendship, rather than heated words or whatever.

    I think that's a good idea, too: making sure to get closure. Writing things down helps me work through many things, and regardless of how friendships die it would probably help. Good answer! Thanks!
