With all the changes and decisions that come with graduating, one of the most unsettling can be the inevitable transitions in friendships. Realistically, some of the people who have been really important in your life will fade away with time and distance. With others you may have sporadic contact. With a very few, you may keep in touch regularly. Even as you realize you will be moving on soon but not yet, it is normal to have some sense of disconnection as you sit with a crowd of your friends and remember it won’t be this way much longer. You may even feel yourself pulling away now. That’s human, and you are preparing yourself emotionally. And if you think this sounds sad, remember it is the normal, human way of things. Maybe this is why we create memories.
