I agree. Danielle offered some sound advice. But where I come from is that if these relationships begin to feel toxic and one-sided, then there should be discussions about our drifting apart and what we can do to repair it. Friends come and go, some stay and others leave, but it’s all part of our individual story. What we can take away from this is to learn how to grow our emotions and mental capacities.
Maybe I will call later this week and ask her out for a cup of tea and take time to listen to her. Maybe it isn’t really about me but her.
I think you offered very interesting perspective. You’re very right to approach my friend with a peaceful and graceful attitude and to talk rationally about what has been going on. The truth is is that even my perspective could be totally wrong, and it could even be one sided. I don’t necessarily want to cut her out of my life just yet as I don’t think our journey is coming to an end anytime soon. People fight all the time and good things come of it: they take time to mature their relationship and understand one another. Maybe this rough patch between her and I is a sign that we should grow together as young adults, navigating and taking on the chaotic world.
Thanks again for your input and it is greatly appreciated.
