Wow, what a fantastic post. This is a rite of passage that all of us go through, and it is really hard. I'm going to print this out for my daughters (I have twin daughters in middle school). Pray for me LOL


So many friendships do grow apart over time - but I will say, it makes those that last mean so much more to me as I get older! I am looking forward to seeing my daughter make friends as she gets older.


I want to believe that my kids won't go through such experiences alone, too, but I fear that they might very well do it alone. Right now, like your daughter, my two older kids are young enough (10 and 8) to share such an experience with me. But when they're 13? 14? Wouldn't your mother have listened to you, commiserated with you, comforted you? Mine would have. But I didn't go to her. How do we ensure our kids come to us when these things happen?

I still have one friend from 4th grade. All the rest were left by the wayside...I stayed close with a lot of them during High School but after that it was over...I still have some HS friends but my one 4th grade friend is my best!!! We are still BFF's hee hee

I had a similar friendship when I was young - from 6th grade through sophmore year in high school and then it came to a screeching halt for the same reasons you described in your post. I treasure our friendship that was, but I don't long to resurrect it. Some relationships are just for a season while others are for a lifetime.


it is really sad, I agree... I had very close friends in high school, and I still miss them, i miss the friendship that we once had, but it's obvious that when we grow into new people, with new interests, we kinda new to find 'new' friends. :(
