Really. Nothing happened. It’s just that you’ve lost connection with the people whom you have known for the longest time. It is not bad and you don’t need to overthink it. That’s just how life is and as much as you would want to think it is sad, it shouldn’t last long.
People change and that’s the root of it all. You don’t need to fight over something, you don’t need to have a big argument with these people, it’s just that their interests, beliefs, perspective and a lot of other things have changed from yours and it’s not going to work out.
At first you still try to understand them, you still try to ride on to their “new” habits, you try to listen to their (twisted) beliefs, but at one point you suddenly wanted to stop right? It is because everything is so different now.
The fun times and the friendship will always be there but the connection is nowhere to be found and THAT IS TOTALLY OKAY. Because you know what, it means you are growing up, you are maturing and you are learning that you don’t need to fit right in. You don’t need to be what everyone wanted to be.
Before, even if you kept saying you don’t need to please everybody, you find yourself trying to please everyone you meet, because that’s what everyone does. Please everyone. Now that you have aged and had painful experiences, you realize how cruel this world is and yes, you don’t need to be one of them mean people but you know your worth already and you know that you don’t have a lot of time to exert effort on people who do not like you.
No, you are not friendless. You are just being you. You are being matured. And then everything everyone said about adulthood clicks in, everything falls into place and you now understand the clichés you’ve been hearing all your life.
You are not going to be alone and friendless because in this life, some people go and some people come. You will meet new ones and you will find a friend in these people.
Everyone changes and that’s okay because you have changed as well. Just be grateful to the people whom you still have a special connection with and keep a smile in your heart for the ones that went on different paths.
