“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?
