Hey all...just graduated from college and attempting to navigate life in the "real world". I'm struggling in the area of friendships right now. It's been a difficult year seeing some of my closest friendships slowly start to fade. One of my closest friends got married last summer and lives in another state now, another just got a new job (in a different state as well), another is leaving for seminary on the other side of the country soon, and on and on it seems. I find myself...well, wallowing in myself...and missing these friends so much. I think it's okay and normal to be sad about these friendships changing, especially in this stage of life, but it's way too easy to just feel sorry for myself and isolate myself from others. Please pray that I would fight these pity parties, as well as being intentional about reaching out to these friends still, and reaching out to others I don't know well who are around me right now. I need an extra push and encouragement in this area right now. Thanks!
