Have you ever found yourself in a predicament where you have grown apart from old friends?
Yes it's the ebb and flow of life.
Interests and priorities change, dating/marriage or having children take up more time. Careers can also be demanding forcing one to spend more time bonding with co-workers than social contacts. Last but not least traveling and other various experiences which are radically different from that of your old friends can also create distance or make you feel like you have less in common.
"People come into your life for a Reason, a Season or a Lifetime."
- Brian A. "Drew" Chalker
Yes. And though it happens to almost everybody, it undoubtedly hurts. And in my case, I tend to have some sort of guilt about it because I was the one who changed. I was the one who kinda forgot them. It's painful but we just have to move on eventually.
My mother always told me that the amount of true friends you would have in life that stuck by you thru the years no matter what happens, you would be able to count in one hand if that. I agree with the comments made, but I have also have experienced the truthfulness of my mother's words.
I always believe that at your worst times you will know who you true friends really are and that is my best way of saying it out. I have lost so called friends those who I thought were my friends and I feel much better than having them around.
Grown apart, yes, but a good thing rather than a predicament. Nothing is ever permanent or lasting. As we born, so we will grow old and die. Friends also move on.
My case was infinitely more beautiful. I read a book one day and woke up to the Light of God. From then on my relationship with friends, alcohol, parties, desires and food took a new and different course. You might say that I was called to a new life. Not a predicament, my sweet.
Yes. Make tracks and then move on. Some people are a part of the past for a reason. If you don't have similar lifestyle, dreams, and mentality there is a reason why they were left behind. Just as light and dark can not dwell together neither can those upward bound hang around crabs ready to celebrate your defeat because in your success their failures are evident.
