losing friends by ErinBird losing friends by ErinBird
"If you're not losing friends, then you're not growing up." - unknown

In life you're going to lose friends, it's just how it is. You won't be friends with the same person from when you were 7 up until you're 70 (if you are then wow that's rare). The reason behind this is because people change. Not only your friends, but yourself too. As you go on throughout life, you'll change and develop as a person and you may come to realise that you don't want to be friends with a particular person anymore as they aren't how they used to be, or, you've changed to want something else in a friendship. It may even be that life just gets in the way so people grow distant and come apart. But what a lot of people don't realise is this: it's okay to lose friends . Yes it may be sad at the time, but sometimes letting go of people is what's best. Just remember to make new friends in the process so you're not alone (:

After note: I should mention however that you should try and work out a friendship before you lose that person. If something gets hard between you and them, don't give up straight away, instead make sure to work your hardest in sorting the relationship out. I think you should only walk away when you can do no more after you've given it your all.

SHOES: I've had a few notes sent and comments posted about my shoes and I actually did paint them myself - also if you want to see them in focus then here is a link to a clear picture of them --> instagram.com/p/pZSrnNBq7B/

ive lost my 3 best friends ive had for like 15 years now or more. it happened recently. we just stopped talking, making plans together, helping each other one day... no reason really. First i didnt care. I was just living MY life.
 Next I started to look for quotes from books that would explain in "kind of pretty way" what happened.
 Few days ago I decided to stop waiting for them in anyway,stopped looking for explanations why it all happened.
Today i was just browsering thru dA and i saw one of your devations, then I checked out your gallery and found this one.

 Thank you, so much - because of you, today I stopped somewhat blaming myself for losing these friends. It's funny like one picture can change so much. Thank you once more! Keep up the GREAT work!

i'm sorry to hear that you lost your three friend, especially when there seems to be no reason behind it too. I'm happy to hear you like my work though, that means a lot, thank you!

untrue. sorry don't mean to hate it and I don't, sometimes loosing people can effect us in very bad ways and this can lead to sinking even lower rather than the great realization that other people arent everything.... I like a lot of your other sayings but this one is not true :/

that's fair enough, but I wouldn't say the quote is "untrue" altogether - I would just say it depends on who you are to see if this quote applies to you or not (:

Anyway, thanks for cheering me up! ♥

I've been there before too so I know how you feel and no I wouldn't say you're "grown up" but it's a part of your life you go through on your way to becoming an adult in a way

Did you write this and then carefully take a picture of it?  Or did you use photo manipulation?  It's very impressive either way!

Thats just how life is. But I feel that with social sites, even though we drift apart we can still keep in touch. 

But people move away, get jobs, go to college, and some fall off the world.

It's part of growing up. If it were easy, everyone would do it.

Exactly :aww: it's not something that we can help because losing friends is just a part of life and people need to get used to it. In an ideal world, people could keep all their friends, but since it's not, we must go through these kind of experiences of losing friends.

Well if anything, I was a very close up person, so I never really had any friends to begin with until last year I made 2 friends, and this year 1 more. Awesome quote though :D
