Letting Go of Old Friends

Sometimes when you get older, you grow apart from certain things. For example, when you become a teenager, you no longer want to watch Sesame Street anymore (well maybe.) But you catch my drift. You start to have different tastes in food and different interest in tv. And sometimes, friends.

Well recently, I had this friend I stopped talking to. We were close, but once I graduated from college, I had different plans for life and he didn’t really fit in it. I decided to start a business and help more people with my blog. He is not really moving, he is staying still.

I used to think it was harsh, but I can’t keep dead weight. If he was more proactive I would think about keeping him around, but he isn’t. He has ideas and doesn’t follow through. I want someone to encourage me and push me, not talk to me about his drama.

It was fun while I was in college because he was a distraction from all stress from school, but now that I’m out, I’m not interested in our conversations anymore. I want something more.

As far as my mental health goes, he was kind of supportive, but not enough for me to talk about my problems to him. I needed spiritual advice and he wasn’t a Christian.

I think he has noticed our friendship was drifting because he messaged me on Facebook instead of calling or texting me. Sometimes these things happen, but there is no point trying to force something that isn’t meant to be.

It’s time for me to move on, I’m going to bigger and better places.
