Musings: You are supposed to outgrow some friendships; don’t beat yourself about it

Rejection by a potential romantic partner is often seen as a part of the game of dating. When we are rejected by a friend or group, we’re often far more bereft.

These are the people with whom we have shared far more honest and authentic pieces of ourselves. The pain from losing friendships can often run far deeper and last much longer.

Unlike romantic relationships with a clear beginning and end-date, friendships tend to break and fade over time.

Sometimes, we simply stop talking to someone and are afraid to be the next one to reach out. Often, we just can’t get our plans aligned and are left wondering if life is really this busy or we’re both avoiding one another.

Sometimes our lives stop running congruent to one another, and we discover our bond was really through circumstance and nothing greater.

Other times, we stop having enough in common to make the effort worthwhile. Sometimes we stop being the people we once were, and our relationship shifts alongside that.

You are not for everyone, and everyone is not for you.
