The Moments We Realised We Outgrew Our Friends
Friendship is so important in any girl’s life. It’s bad enough having to go through high school, navigating the different cliques, trying to stay under the Mean Girls’ radars (unless, of course, you were a Mean Girl), all those awkward teen phases (hello braces and glasses, we are so glad you decided to happen at the same time!), to the downright b*tchy betrayal moments. But when things seem to want to derail, having the comfort of your #GirlGang can really get you right on track. This is so true all the way into adulthood.
High school was just a few years ago for some of us; for the rest of us, it was, well, way more than a decade ago. What was a daily huddle in the mornings before school started has transcended to special Whatsapp and Facebook groups where you plan those brunch dates (they sometimes happen, right?)
Just like love, we fall in and out of friendship. It’s completely normal. You can outgrow friends, or reconnect with old friends like you would a first crush and feel the chemistry right away. Sad but true, we’ve all been there. Here are some of our moments we realised we outgrew our friendships.

Sometimes you can not speak to someone for years and when you see them, you hit it off like there wasn’t a second that passed since you last met. That’s fine, it’s natural. Chemistry between friends is just like when you go on a date. Sometimes you hit it off, sometimes you just don’t. You can drift apart, gain different interests over the years. It’s the natural flow and ebb of life. Don’t feel bad about it.
