Why Do Our Best Friends Sometimes Become Strangers?

I’ve long believed that people serve a role in our lives, particularly friends, outside of simply being our friends.

Our friends and family show us how to grow and where we have room to develop, no matter what age you are.

The sad thing about that, though, is that sometimes you no longer get anything out of a friendship and you have to say goodbye.

Why does this happen?

We hurt each other…

Sometimes we hurt each other. Sometimes rifts are created because we either accidentally or intentionally hurt one another. At times, friends have a disagreement that they simply can’t get past.

It has a lot more to do with a disagreement though. One person peeved doesn’t end a friendship. It has to be a great trauma.

You can’t keep people in your life if you’re going to hold onto toxic feelings in order to be with them. If you can’t get over pain inflicted by a friend, it’s time to move on.
