Most of the readers of this blog have experienced it, are experiencing it, or will experience it. It’s a time of limbo. You are trying to cling to friendships that have been forged in high school and college but it gets harder and harder. People are getting engaged or are locked into serious relationships. You relocated for work or to have more fun. You are either moving on to the next phase of life or clinging to college days. There is no wrong answer but not everyone chooses the same thing.
In the last year everyone writing on the blog has moved. One of our readers said he felt like Smalls in The Sandlot when everyone moved away. Some of us have changed jobs or will change jobs shortly. Life is moving pretty fast and it’s hard to know what’s best. When friends tend to drift from your life, people tend to cling to the few they have left around. If they are running out of friends they may decide the single life is pretty lonely and start a relationship. Right or wrong who knows. You try to catch up with people as much as possible but it’s never easy. People say they will catch up or hang out but it’s not the same. It’s no one’s fault because everyone has to do what is best for them.
I’m going to choose to enjoy the drift. I have some ideas of what I want to do next but nothing is in stone. The key is to be open to whatever may be next and just try to do what you think will make you happy. Keep in touch with your good friends the best you can but do what’s best for you ultimately.
