Hey guys! Lots of people think that if they haven’t seen or talked to a person in a long time, they aren’t friends anymore. This is very untrue, especially when you get older. With school, work, and family, it’s hard to keep in contact with people all the time. Not getting to talk to someone doesn’t mean they’ve changed, doesn’t mean that you guys aren’t friends anymore, doesn’t mean you guys can’t be close – it just means you’re busy. Sometimes, although it may be hard to believe, you’re growing up; and those ‘weekday play-dates’ might be a little harder to schedule than when you were younger.This is one of the hardest realizations we will have to face: growing up.   Also, just because you aren’t as close to someone as you were before, it doesn’t mean that they won’t be there for you at all. Some people think that if they can’t talk to their friends all the time they’re losing them. This probably means they’re just going through a hard time and should get some therapy. The thing is you really can’t talk to everyone everyday; it gets really annoying. Just because you like someone doesn’t mean you necessarily like everything about them. There are only a few people out there who can be with you all the time and not get incredibly sick of you – they’re your partner. You date these people because you like them so much that you just can’t get enough of them. But this doesn’t mean other people don’t like you. Sometimes when you’ve been around someone for years you just need a break. Then when you go back and start talking/hanging with them again it’s like a breath of fresh air because you just click with them so well that you re-experience all the excitement and fun you had when you first met them. The ‘Where have you been all my life?’ or ‘Yes, Exactly!’ feelings bubble up again. Sometimes it just takes a little space to remember how much you really appreciate someone.   – Kelsey
