Growing Out.

“It’s no good trying to keep up old friendships. It’s painful for both sides. The fact is, one grows out of people, and the only thing is to face it.”

– W. Somerset Maugham

Humans tend to be so naive in their thinking that it clouds their thoughts and judgements right into their old age. I believe that all these dreams we once had are shaped through what we see with our young eyes. But as we grow, reality strikes and it doesn’t seem to head in the direction we expect it to be. And we get crushed.

As mere beings, we often result in using our defense mechanisms to protect ourselves hence resulting in denial and the likes of it. Not only are we in denial but, we just can’t face it when reality strikes. No matter how hard we try to stick together and build bridges, it’s never gonna change. Well, it may work for a while, but it won’t last. People change as time passes. The fact is, time has passed. And there isn’t anything much that we can do but to face it. It’s quite a depressing thought but, I’m thinking, it’s really time to move on.

Perhaps, things were never meant to be anyway. Ever thought of that?

    hmm… i’ve totally pondered on that before. and I think in terms of friendship, it works both ways. If one side decide to move out, then maybe its not meant to be afterall =)
    but often time, putting in some effort into the friendship can help bridge the gap. Even though you don’t see each other often, or hear from each other often, a little gesture can mean a lot! But then again, if the other side does not reciprocate, then maybe you should just leave it as it is. At least you’ve done your part =)

    Hey love, it’s been a while. Missed you :) Hehe.

    Yeah, about that – I think sometimes we’ve tried our best to make the ends meet, but they just never meet. And it gets really tiring. It’s just that both sides are growing in very different directions that they’re hardly ever on the same page anymore; even if it has been years that the friendship has lasted. Sad thought though =\

    How’s uni coming along for you? =)
