Our parents have told us growing up, "Surround yourself with people who make you a better person." If you have yet to take this simple advice, what the hell is your problem?
People are always in and out of your life, though you are the sole reason they are there. Whether it's just for a month, the decision is yours. If you have a handful of friends that make you laugh until you cry, care enough to ask why you're upset, and genuinely trust your opinion, you are miraculously fortunate.
Almost a year post-graduation and I've already lost contact with about 90% of the individuals I communicated with on a daily basis in college. Hi, I'm not too bothered by that in the slightest bit. Out-growing most and not having the time to care is genuinely trumping the fact that I relocated to the East coast. If you want to speak to someone, you will. The plethora of technological advances made it easily capable for anyone to do so. Strip me of texting and I will no longer encompass a human being. The hardest day of my life was being without a phone since the device decided to conveniently self-destruct while I was on vacation. As it deleted all 200+ numbers, I can't say I've been happier with this unknowingly swipe of incompetent souls from my life.
Don't waste your time.
