I’ve always been bad at keeping up with relationships. Even though I do see some friends when I go to LA, it’s usually the same 3 people, but I don’t talk to them before or after, so our conversations may be a little more like catching up, but not as deep. And even though I have some relationships in the Bay Area that are considered closer, we can drift apart pretty quickly. I think the only “closer” relationships I have are with my roommates, but that is also probably cuz we LIVE together and they have to see us. If they lived somewhere else, not sure how often we would hang out. At least we sometimes have dinner or watch a movie together.
I think I am content with this though…I don’t think all relationships will last. Maybe I’m jaded since I left LA and all my friends when marriage happened? And friends that I make sometimes leave for jobs or move out of state? And just…we just sometimes drift apart because we don’t make as much of an effort to be part of each other’s lives. I guess this is just something that you have to accept as part of life. Things just go on, work goes on, senseless killings happen, wildfires burn down everything you own (there are fires in SoCal and NorCal right now). I think I’m just in a stage in which I am just cruising through…I know it’s just a phase…hopefully, I can enjoy the holiday season with a happier outlook…holidays should bring our relationships with other together.
