If you aren’t losing friends, what are you doing? Really. Personal growth means your shape will become different, you won’t always fit into the same clothes as your body grows, and your character won’t always fit the same friends as your mind, heart and spirit develop. The trouble with outgrowing friends (or a whole friend group) is the emotional ties. Breaking up with a friend can make us feel guilty, and losing us as a comrade can turn even the best of friends toxic. I have had an experience like this that I have learned from. I’m here to offer this advice and support on your new path.
