In a couple of months I will be turning 41 years old.
I know SHOCKER!!
Since the big 4-O so much has changed. I had people in my life, walk out, after being friends for 20+years. Most of us had been friends since high school, a couple since sixth grade. At the time it was sad losing them all at once, without really knowing why. People when they get older drift apart. I get that, this was more than that.
Facebook has this "On This Day" that pops up in my notifications. Most of the time I giggle about what I posted, because I'm a dork! Then there are times that I had a hard day and posted about that. I take the time to thank God that I'm no longer in that place. I read the comments and hit the delete button on the comments of the people who are no longer in my life.
It's like washing the dirty laundry.
When I was younger I was told that once I hit a certain age I will no longer need the approval of other people and I will be able to walk away from things that I no longer need in my life.
I think that I hit that age.
So now when I think about it, does it really matter why? Those people are gone because they chose to walk out.
Life as it's been said, moves on.
