FRIENDSHIP: For A Season Or Forever?

We go through life in different phases; it seems just like yesterday when I was a little girl in primary school with colourful ribbons in my hair. Fast forward to now, I am a grown woman, probably in the busiest period of my life. Every now and then, I find myself thinking of “old” friends and what they are up to. When I had “best friends” in primary and secondary school, and even up till University, I had thought such friendships would last forever.

Life happened, and though it seems you won’t be able to survive without having those awesome people around you, you move on to the next phase, and develop new relationships.

So what do you think?

Are some friendships meant to just last for a season or period in life; or are they meant to be kept and nurtured forever, no matter the time or place? Do you have friends who have been in your life forever? Why do you think we have best friends for a season and then grow apart after a while?

Please share your thoughts.

    Some friendships are meant to last forever and some aren’t basically cause people change and with that change comes a change of scenery or persons. In all though we learn from each friendship we have

    Friendship must be kept, nurtured, forever but these can only happen if you accept each other as you are and not trying to change each other to be what neither of you can’t be. Friendship crash i think, when the persons part of your story is over.

    If friendship is important, distance isn’t a barrier.

    Some friends fall apart cos life happened. They grew.
    And with growth come changes.

    I personally tink every1 u meet in life have a role to play n once dat role is Fulfilled, nature take its course.

    And yes some friends last forever!
    They are called soulmates!
    They may not necessarily be ur spouse but with dem comes dis mutual understanding built over time

    In every new phase of your life you meet new SRT of people some whom you bece so attached to and some you just talk for a few time. I believe that true friends last forever. So choose your friends wisely so tommprrpw they would not just be friends but more like family.
