I am outgrowing a lot of people that I used to be best friends with in middle and high school. This became extremely evident on my trip to Vegas. The friend I saw I used to be best friends with and we were inseparable. Time passed and we grew up and seeing her again was nice but we have nothing in common. We both have very different values, lifestyles, and goals. Unfortunately this is not the first time I have noticed this. Many of my friends and I have parted paths over the last 4 years. Some friends went away to college and when they came home would only call me if they needed a ride to the airport or train stop.
Not that it is all bad. I have met met many lovely girls in college who are great that I keep in touch with on Facebook. I must make more of an effort to stay in touch and actually SEE these girls.
I also have met many AMAZING women at my work who are a real source of strength and inspiration for me. I am one of the youngest there, so I feel like I have many mothers and sisters around me.
I feel like I have changed a lot in my 20s and many people have came in and out of my life, but I am grateful for the new people I do have. I took a few minutes and cleared off my friends list on Facebook of all the people that I feel “obligated” to be in contact with yet don’t like reading their posts. I feel good about the people that I kept and I find I spend way less time on there.
