I can feel it

Growing apart from some friends. We had our good times but times have changed. I’ve changed. Some are permanently cognitively damaged by all the drug use. I so want to discuss other things now like politics, goals, my dreams, but they are stuck on Netflix shows and bespoke clothes. Not much glue remaining. It’s almost better we don’t spend time together anymore because the time that we do spend together is painful. We used to be a tribe but we are now different species. I hope you guys will understand why I won’t show up anymore. I’d prefer to remember us as the happy clan we used to be, not this awkward bunch we are now.

I'm getting old now but still get twinges of painful remembrance of how it felt, growing apart from friends.

That’s life, isn’t it? People just tend to grow apart and go their separate ways. You can’t pick your family members, but you get to choose your friends. When old friends fade into obscurity, there’s always room for new ones.

Most of my friends are married. My best friend who was single is dead. I get invited by couples to hang out sometimes but they dont get up to much besides meals and TV. I dont know where I fit anymore, maybe nowhere. Its ok. Happiness is not a human right.
