“It happens to everyone as they grow up. You find out who you are and what you want, and then you realize that people you’ve known forever don’t see things the way you do. So you keep the wonderful memories, but find yourself moving on.” ~Nicholas Sparks~
I saw this quote somewhere online yesterday, and it hit me instantly! This is exactly how I've been feeling with people. It's not that either person has done anything wrong, it's just that we're all victims of growing up. We find that we aren't the same people in high school, and that we've switched tracks from what our friends used to think. That's okay. It gives us a chance to move on from who we used to be, find a new crowd. There's a time and a season for everyone in our lives, some just stick around longer than others. Eventually, the people that are meant to be in your lives will be there, and it won't be so hard to keep them there. It may be a long road, but it'll be worth it!
