We all know that growing up is not always easy. When you are a toddler, a tween, a teenager, a young adult, an adult . . . One of the parts of being an adult that I did not foresee is losing friends.
I am not talking about losing a friend because of a petty fight (like when you are a teenager) but more like watching a friendship fade away, like watching a ship fade off into the distant horizon.
It has been on my mind for sometime now, and as much as I have thought about it, I cannot come up with any solution to change what is happening. There are only so many times you can call a person, so many times you can reach out, try to make plans, stay in their lives and include them in your's until enough is enough. Always making the effort to keep a friendship going gets old. And it makes me feel like a loser.
Letting go of a friendship is hard. But holding on is harder.
