As I grow older, I’ve noticed how people can turn their backs suddenly and simply leave without any explanation or actual conflict.
I haven’t even hit the big 2 yet and my social circle is getting smaller… I no longer know who’s true and who’s not. Everyone seems temporary. But when I open my Instagram, everyone else’s social circle is still booming.
And before anyone advises me to join activities and make friends, trust me, I’ve been doing that. But it’s undeniably hard to meet decent human beings.
Is this normal. how does one deal with the loss of relationships they truly care about?
- Don’t believe what you see on Instagram. What you see might not be what it actually is
- The simple answer is that this is normal and relationships will form and dissolve over time.
Even your best friends will come and go due to various reasons (no time to spend with you or have different priorities in life).
It hurts but you need to get used to it. Over time you will learn who are the people that stay with you when you get into problems and ask for help.
Also cherish the relationship while they last and let go of the relationship when it’s appropriate to end.
