Why do we teach people that it’s okay to drift away from close friends, potential partners, even family members?
Nothing binds us together, not even blood. It’s simply unrealistic to think that any form of a relationship will prosper and last without some sort of effort.
So, in my opinion, no; it’s not okay for people to drift away and move on. Because to me, this says, “I didn’t care enough to make the effort to keep you in my life.”
Sure, you may say that life gets the best of us, people get busy, etc. But the truth of the matter is that when someone wants to do something, they do it. When someone wants to have the time for something, they make it.
Excuses are society’s instinctive go-to cane (pardon the House allusion), and it is only when one is knocked down that they realize how hard it is to get back up alone.
