So I was scrolling through Facebook the other day when I noticed an old friend's status update that simply said, "Remember when.."
I remember when I was so close to so many people, people who I don't even see or hear from anymore. It just really got me thinking about how crazy it is and if anyone would choose to do anything differently if they knew then what we all know now. Everyone always says "we'll stay friends forever" and "I'll never change," but people grow apart and most definitely change.
I find myself talking about old memories to other people and when I mention my "friends," I realize that I actually haven't been friends with some of these people in almost ten years. Am I still close to some of my old friends? Of course, but I can probably count them using only one hand. Do I miss any of the ones that I don't talk to anymore? Again, of course! I definitely stalk some of them on social media and just see how they are doing, but I know that we will probably never be close again.
Why am I rambling on about this? I'm not really sure if there is a point and you can take this post however you would like to. What do I hope you get out of it? Enjoy the present moment with the ones in your life, you never know how long they will be there. If you want to keep any of the relationships/friendships that you currently have, make sure to put the effort into them. Sometimes it's not enough, but sometimes that is all you need to let someone know that you want them in your life. Don't be too upset if you lose someone that you shared many amazing memories with, just be happy for the moments that you did have with them.
