Friendship is hard. Let me clarify that statement: some people make friendship difficult. It really isn't, and it shouldn't have to be. You get along with someone, you spend time together, end of story, right?-WRONGO
As you may have gathered, I am dealing with a friendship that is long overdue for a reevaluation. A good friend has recently had some changers come to their life and this person is more available to hang out. Something that hasn't happened in quite some time. I have noticed that after repeated invitations, and attempts to hang out, something or other prevented us from doing this. It wasn't until recently that we finally saw each other. During this encounter, I was hit with the realization that I had been here before. A while back after making many attempts to do something, to spend time together, to hang and to no avail, I slowly started to loose some very close friends. It is very slow and painful, but eventually start doing things with other friends and you stop attempting any kind of serious social get together, this leads you to stop being friends friends. You spend enough time apart, no effort is made on one or both parties and suddenly you realize that you are not actually friends, anymore. There is zero effort being put into making this relation work anymore and you are hardly see each other. I seriously made attempts to get us together in both instances, and I do not lie when I say that I saw the moment our friendships were in peril. You are friends with each other like you are friends with someone you have never met on these social sites. You send funny pictures and witty quotes, but beyond that there is nothing more. Sure you have the past and that is always cool, but who wants to spend time there?- not me. Let's see how this turns out.
