These past few weeks have brought about large amounts of change, particularly in my friendships. While life inevitably changes and there’s nothing we can do about it, it’s whether or not those changes are good or bad that we are left to figure out. In the past few weeks, I’ve lost three very close friends, but the more I think about it, the more I see it as something that will plausibly benefit me in the long run, for these people were never looking out for me, and when the going got tough, they made sure they got the f*ck out. Life changes as time proceeds for a reason; life filters out the things that aren’t meant to be there, the things that will only bring discomfort to us. With that, I can only hope that life will bring new people my way who share the same ideals as I.
