Sometimes we outgrow friendships and that’s ok. Friendships don’t always last forever.  Don’t feel guilty if you no longer have anything in common with a friend.  If you feel that way he/she may feel the same way too.  Life sometimes takes you in different directions where you meet new people learn new things and your goals and values change.  While all these new experiences are happening to you, your friend is also having their own experiences.  This can lead to a disconnect and the feeling that you no longer have anything in common,  the friendship becomes strained and the friendship ends.   It’s ok to mourn the loss but also remember that growth is a part of life.  Wish your former friend well and move forward.
