Today, I had a conversation about friendship.
Over time, we get caught up in our everyday rhythms and lose track of those we care about. Granted, when you move to a different state or just a different place in life, friendships change. You lose friends and you gain friends, but I think we should be careful just how we chose to let go of people. In my naivete, I have abruptly closed doors in order to move forward. While this may have been easier for me, my actions were not always kind. That isn’t to say that there aren’t occasions where an abruptly closed door isn’t necessary. Merely, that it’s important to consider that what might be easier to you, might be hurtful to others. It’s important to make conscience decisions about closing doors, because once their closed they aren’t easy to re-open.
