There are times when I think how fun it would be to relive the times of fun and laughter. When I was teen with no care in the world, that the friends I had then are still here. But unfortunately that's not reality. And that's not to say that those people aren't great people, they definitely are. Everyone just grows. Grows up. Grows apart. Grows together. Grows in different directions.
People become memories. Friends become people you used to know. None of it is bad, it's just what happens in life when your goals aren't aligned with those you surround yourself with.
I truly believe you become the 5 people you are around the most. Even if you think it's not true, you end up adopting those same mindsets and tendencies. It's only bad when those people are not productive, positive, and encouraging in the life you want to live.
Sure I miss those friends from high school that are just a distant thought. And maybe I'm to blame. But I know that if life planned itself out any other way, I wouldn't be where I am today.
With the good, the bad, and the sorrow my life's where it's supposed to be.
