all the time : (
I feel the same way! So many people cross our ways - sometimes in a good and sometimes in a negative way - that are special to us and when they disappear, whether it's one's fault or not, one should do something about it, to not let it be final! I've been trying to reconnect to special people in my life to make a change! And it turned out to be the right thing to do!
I feel this way now.
yes, a lot!
i think we must have had dozens of talks about this very thing in our house. i feel like we all cross each others paths for one reason or another (mostly to learn, since that is what life is all about)...and i think that sometimes we grow together and sometimes we grow apart. its okay to let go of those past relationships and friendships...after all, it goes both ways...both people have to put forth the effort to maintain it, and if its just not there then its just not there...and that is okay. just learn, and love, and grow...and know that you've all walked away with something...even if its only a mind full of memories. love love and happy sunday.xo.
I do too, I met up with some old friends today, nothing stays the same. x
Absolutely....reminds me of a team I worked with 3 years ago : there were 3 fantastic girls and they made an awful job bearable...then we all went working in different places making eternal promises of friendship forever and I haven't seen them in 2 years !...Now I need to give them a call !Caro xxx

You just pin pointed exactly what I have been feeling a lot lately.
wow. this hit me really hard. i'm going through that exact situation right now.
i know how you feel kaylah! i just blogged about this the other week: http://creativali.blogspot.com/2010/09/thoughts-on-friendship.html
I definitely feel this way sometimes. Its easy to search for reasons why people drift apart, but its harder (and I think more rewarding) to put up the fight to stay friends. I think I fall into the pattern of always thinking friendships should come easily, when that's not necessarily true.
frequently! Thanks for sharing!!
I feel this way a lot. :( It is sad that i am only 22 go to the same college as a lot of my old high school friends but we never see each other and haven't talked since graduation. My group was like a bunch of sisters and now we never speak. I need to call them this week!
yes i do, absolutely! i´m thinking about that a lot these days and it makes me sad.
Goodness, this gave me chills. It definitely hit close to home. I'm always the one who relocates, and leaves a perfectly good friendship behind. Which is sad, because finding people that you have a genuine connection with isn't always an easy task.
I used to, but not so much any more if I'm honest. Over the years I've come the conclusion that unfortunately sometimes, you just grow out of people.That said, I've had a few friendships that I thought had died a death, and then picked up again years later. I guess if it's a friendship worth having then it doesn't matter who doesn't contact who or for how long for, you'll come back to each other eventually. ...Bloody hell, how cheesy do I sound??
As a matter of fact yes and too often lately :/
i could have written that myself. just yesterday i decided to make a mid-year resolution to cut people a little more slack. i probably let go of a few friends because of this when i really didn't need to. lately i've been feeling like hibernating a bit and i would hope my good friends wouldn't write me off because i need some space. i can learn to do the same for them.
great job at capturing what so many of us feel. I'm terrible at this. I think facebook has made it easier for me to connect even just a little bit. I can always send a quick message on fb when calling just doesnt seem to be in the cards. It's a good way to reconnect when you're feeling a little distance from someone.
Totally, and you never think of it being your own fault either do you....I've contemplated scratching one of my oldest friends coz he hasn't made contact in months....but then neither have I. He's prob thinking the same thing!
HEY! Thanks for dropping by. xo KB
