As we go forward in life (yep, I’m referring to getting older) we make and change friends in different ways. I’m sure the majority of us would agree that the number of close friendships we hold become fewer and fewer. The reality here is that time is precious, and we spend the majority of it at work and with our families.
Our friendships also appear to change as we get older. We don’t have the time or energy to form new connections, and it’s easier to let go of toxic relationships. We have less tolerance for insincerity, and become more protective over ourselves and the personal information we’re willing to share.
That being said, friendship is an integral part of our well-being and happiness. So don’t dwell on the dwindling size of your circle of friends – losing friends is natural (and sometimes a good thing). Rather cherish those relationships and friendships that have deepened over time – and give you the comfort of knowing that even when you feel alone, you aren’t.
