Re: Letting go of unauthentic relationships - 40s

Hi, lilly210,

You have some very good questions!

I have found that some friendships just drift away. Some are more like the tide, they come and go as we have time and need. Others end in a big explosion!

I have some newer friends that I really clique with at this time in my life and I have good friends that I've been friends with since high school. The new ones are great for doing things together because they are convenient, but I don't rely on them for real support.

My old friends are there for support, but I've left a few of them behind. I don't have any bad feelings or ill will. I just have accepted that we don't have anything in common, I can't provide them with the kind of friendship they need, and they are kind of a drag.

That's my experience with friendships at this stage in life.
