Are you discovering that you don’t like your friends anymore, or that something doesn’t feel right?
If you’re into personal growth, you will at some point outgrow some or all of your friends. This is especially true with childhood friends. The sooner you can accept it, the easier it’ll be.
Your friends may object and ask you why you’re abandoning them, or not hanging out with them, but there’s not much you can do. The signs are obvious.
Your friends create their own reality, and if they choose to create the feeling of abandonment, it is up to them. It’s not a lot of fun, but they will get over it.
It can get lonely while you’re transitioning from one group of friends to another. You’ll wish that you could go back to the way things were. Friendship is like that.
Everything seems so much easier when you selectively pick out memories from the past. You might even try to go back for a while, but it won’t feel quite right if you no longer have anything in common.
The longer you try to resist your growth, the harder it’ll be to hang on. You will start feeling more and more disconnected from your current group of friends and drawn in another direction.
