This post title might sound very serious but in fact, it is something that I soon realize to be normal and bound to happen once you enter a new stage of life. When I was first looking for my first job, I thought I have all the time in the world to snap photos, hang out with my friends, try out new cafes, or just randomly strolling around and dropping by coffe shop to have a cup or two. Now that I have worked, those days are pretty much gone. When you enter an adult life aka working life, things gets pretty much routine. I really enjoy my work though, but once I get home, the only thing that I would want to do is sleep. I am not even kidding.
But at the same time, I realize that this is the time wherein the very filters in which I see things and the principles that guide me, change. I am starting to make decisions about who I keep company with, solidify my priorities, and generally see myself in a bigger context than ever before.
With that being said, losing touch with some of my friends become unavoidable. Well, with some people, it is expected, but with others, it feels like a punch to the stomach. Separation is bound to happen and I slowly realize that everyone ends up with the ones that matter to them. Maybe we don't head to the destination or maybe we don't always, or even rarely ever, evolve along the same timeline. I always believe that in the of the day "...the best you can do is stand behind your own choices, stay focused on continuing to become the happiest, healthiest most successful version of yourself possible, and try to retain a certain sense of social zen - people come in and out of your ife, and that's okay."
