Outgrowing Friendships

This blog has been dormant for months now. Yes, I had my phase of writers’ block. Or maybe not. I wrote diary, I wrote things which I felt were very personal and not quite worthy of being put up on wordpress for the readers even though this blog is a personal one without any professional motive in mind.

Writing is like an outlet of emotions and so are friendships I guess. Each one of us goes through issues in our lives which are eventually sorted with self talk, or with the help of family or with the help of friends. In the time of crisis, all you need is to have someone beside you to sail through the storms of life. Friendships play a crucial role in our lives. Almost everyone has a person in their lives whom they call their “best friend” and very lucky people happen to have the same person through a very long time. Sometimes, people fall in love with their best friends and happen to spend a lifetime together. Such a happy place it is!

Most people have different best friends in different stages of life. They also know that they might not stay with each other forever because “Life Happens” and it’s absolutely acceptable. Here’s a twist, somehow you realise that your best friend isn’t really your best friend. This realization might be true or false because this feeling is something you would not share with your best friend and the fact that you’re on the verge of outgrowing your friendship with the person you love strikes you hard.

But I want to tell you through this post that it’s okay. This age of 20 to 30 is such where you meet a lot of people, you’ll love them, you’ll hate them, you’ll grow with them, you’ll fall too. It’s okay to outgrow of friendships of years. And it’s also in your hands to come back together too, just make sure to learn to survive alone till then. Stay strong because no matter, eventually everything falls into place.
