It happens to all of us.
Especially if you don't shy away from personal growth and change.
Eventually we outgrow a friendship and find it's time to move on.
It could be as simple as just drifting apart due to changing interests.
Or it could be one of those times when we make a big shift in what we value and suddenly, certain people just don't fit anymore.
WHAT TO DO?
There really is no rule book for changes like this.
Drifting apart is probably the easiest and least confrontational of all the scenarios.
Then there are the biggies, like say, if a close friend starts doing drugs and is not responsive to seeking help.
Well, that's a big "OUCH", but it is time to cut ties and move on.
And sometimes we can be the culprit, like when we discover a new philosophy and just have to share it with everyone.
Yes, we are excited and want everyone to experience what we are going through, but pushing our new perspective on others will most certainly lead to friends "ignoring" your calls and texts.
Sometimes I find it best to let someone else wrap things up.
This is definitely one of those times.
I ran across this video from Marie Forleo several years ago.
I love the way she sums it all up.
Short, sweet and to the point.
It's an oldie, but goodie.
