Sometimes there’s no huge fight that marks the end of a friendship. No falling out, no major disagreement. Sometimes it just falls apart for no good reason. Distance. New relationships. Priorities. Somehow these things can become more important than your connection; they shouldn’t but they do. And as we get older we tend to downsize, prioritize. Trim the corners of our lives, keeping what’s important and discarding what isn’t. Sometimes we stop needing people in our lives and it isn’t even conscious. So before you get consumed by current relationships, especially in your youth, remember a lot of people you know now will end up strangers once you grow up and focus on important things in your adult life. Maturity doesn’t come with age but with proprieties.
