Friends may come in and out of your life for a season – we have friends of convenience (work, neighborhood, hobbies) and lives change. Not all friendships last forever, and mourning a friendship that has ended or withered away over time does not necessarily mean either of you were bad friends to each other. What it does mean life takes us on a different routes sometimes and there are more people for us to be connected to in the future.
Be present in your friendships and do random acts of kindness towards your friends and most of all don’t expect anything in return! Be the friend that you want others to be for you. If you’re blessed with a long-standing friendship where time, distance and the chaos of separate lives can’t keep you apart, then celebrate and cherish those friendships!
