30. Sometimes friendships fail for whatever reason.

Someone I've known for 58 years has always been a reactionary sort. We grew up a few houses from each other and have shared many experiences, both good and bad. I've lived in another state for many years but always made a point of knocking on that door when in town. The last time I saw this person, something had definitely changed. Someone or something had gotten to him and I could see it was pointless to hope for an intelligent conversation. That was about 5 years ago and I sensed then that I would not likely be looking him up again.

I can accept that loss knowing that things fade away and I'll not be changing his mind. Time and many years of history together seem to be a good reason to sustain a relationship but that effort may not be healthy for those involved.

Stay true to yourself and those closest to you. Look forward. Your next 64 years will bring new friendships along with the wisdom of your first 64 years.
