Everyone has their friends, but there are also those 1 or 2 whom you can rely on no matter what. Friends forever right? Well, not always. Something has happened that I feel I need to share with you...
When I was little, I had this bright pink dress that I absolutely loved. It had all the Disney princesses on it, and a sheer cape in the back.
When I wore it, I remember feeling as if I was a princess, like I could do anything. I loved it so much that I kept wearing it even as the weather got colder. The second year I had it, it started getting tight- and it was really hard to take my arms out of the holes.
Soon enough, my mum told me I needed to get a new dress- I was heartbroken when I heard this! Although the new one didn't have princesses or neon pink cape, it was beautifully colour-blocked.
After a while, my old dress seemed kind of silly, and I felt as if it wasn't mine anymore.
At the moment, when I'm with one of my best friends, it's like we don't fit anymore.
She's kind of 2 faced. Sometimes she's nice, and we talk just like last year, but when she hangs out with her other friends, it's like she's a brand new person. When she's with them, everything she says is rude and immature.
At first I though it was because of myself or my close friends. Were we doing something wrong?
But then I realized maybe friends are a bit like clothes- when they start feeling uncomfortable, it's not because we did anything wrong. It's simply because we've outgrown them.
I've decided it's best not to try and squeeze yourself into a friendship where you know you don't fit. That I'm not going to let her try make me follow her around like a little puppy dog (she has enough "followers" already, haha).
I'll stick to the people who make me feel good about myself. You know who you are :)
What about you?
Have you ever been in a friendship you've outgrown?
I'd love to hear about it in the comments below...
