Some things are meant to be outgrown as we mature, including people. There are some people in our lives who are just meant to be with us for a season, but there are also who will be there for a lifetime. We cannot do something about it, as it happens normally. Though it’s a sad truth, still we need to accept it.
During our twenties, the people who surround us really matter the most.They will influence us a lot in regard to our future. That is why it is very important to choose our friends during these years. It is actually the most crucial time to our development.
At some point in our lives, we will move into another wavelength and suddenly disconnect with other friends. The sooner we accept this fact, the easier it will be for us. Some of our friends may object and ask us why we are abandoning them, but there is nothing much we can do. It’s just that we are undergoing personal growth. No matter how difficult or saddening the transition may be, it should be accepted. It can only get lonelier and more painful when we try to resist our growth. It will be harder to hang on, especially when we wish we could go back to the way things were.
We need to surround ourselves with inspiring people who match our energy and ambitions in life. We also need to be with those who are constantly pushing themselves to become better. If we persistently surround ourselves with negative people, then they will hinder our progression in life. Why spend time with people who continue to drag us down when we can actually be with those who will elevate us?
If there are people who keep on holding us back, then we must cut them out in our lives. This is the best time to discover who our true friends are. Who knows, maybe we will meet them again down the road. All we need to do is to move on. Let us associate ourselves with people who encourage us to succeed.
There will always be that sense of responsibility to stay true to our friends, but we need to remember that we also have to stay true to ourselves. Over time, we will continue to outgrow people and situations. We just have to be proactive about it and surround ourselves with those who understand this.
