Have you ever wondered how your friendship / relationship has suddenly just dissolved into something you don’t really recognise anymore? And the matter of fact, when you think about it, is that there are plenty of factors that would have contributed to that diminishing state of the friendship / relationship. In other words, it was transient.
Not all friendships are what you would take with you for the rest of your life. It would be nice, yes, but inevitably, there will be changes that would occur in both yours and their lives that would ultimately determine the outcome of all of that.
And don’t blame anyone for it. Not them. not yourself, because at the end of the day, we, as humans evolve in such a way that is not really comprehensible to our own minds when we try to psycho-analyse all that might have happened in the time span.
It is not anyone’s fault. Don’t go around pointing fingers, even to yourself, because you would have evolved in a different way to your friend, thereby changing the very dynamic that led you to be close in the first place.
Take heart, however, in all that is good in your friendship and see the beauty in what has led you to where you are now with party X, and then see what happens after, because who knows, that dynamic might just change again.
These are transients in our lives… and they are really not meant to be taken negatively.
