I have been thinking a lot this week. More than usual.
I have decided that you fall out with people for 2 different reasons.
Firstly, because someone did something unforgivable. Something awful happened between you which means that the friendship is ruined and altered beyond repair.
I think this happens occasionally and quite often, after enough time has gone by, you can sit down and talk it out and you can realise things are blown out of proportion.
But the other type occurs more often. The time when you just grow apart.
Maybe something happens which makes it more obvious than it seemed before.
But eventually, you just realise that the friend you loved just isn't that person any more.
And I don't think it's something that can be reconciled. Not really.
Because, as I've touched on before, it's almost impossible, it's almost impossible to see the situation you are in sometimes, because you're in it. You can't objectively look back on yourself and be like "Shit, I've changed and now I'm a twat."
Things just don't work like that. Life would be easier if they did. But I think sometimes it's worth sticking with the slightly more difficult life if it means staying truer to yourself and staying truer to the expectations that you have of the people you surround yourself with.
