Wish they had told me, while growing up, that not all friendships were meant to last forever. I’d lose some and gain some.
There are so called “friends” that I’ve not talked to in years. Not to mean that there’s bad blood between us but I guess we both just stopped trying.
Have you ever had an experience where you thought someone ghosted you only to find out later that, that person thought you ghosted them first, so both of you just stopped trying?
I’m a firm believer that friendships should not be forced, unless that between family members, that you have to force. (Or at least I have to, after all blood is thicker than water ay?)
I have come to a conclusion that I won’t be close with everyone forever and so I’ve learnt to enjoy the small moments and cherish them if good, and forget them if they are bad. Life is constantly changing. You darling, are constantly evolving. Your friends are evolving. I’ll echo what my mum is constantly telling me which is, “some friendships are seasonal.”
But please, if you feel the friendship is worth fighting for, do it. Just don’t force issues too much, after all there’s only so much one can do to preserve a friendship. Any ship.
Sending light and love your way ❤️
