The older I get the more I realise that not everyone we know, whether it’s friends or loved one’s. We begin to see them for who they really are.
The day I became a mom, my whole world changed. My whole perspective on everyone I once knew, changed. My protective and mother instinct took over and I became aware much more so of everything and everyone around me.
The day you become a parent, you lose so many friends along the way even new friends grow apart. Even the friends you once called family or lifelong friends.
Unfortunately you grow apart from one another. That’s life and you realise that your kids, your husband and your family is most important.
It’s already difficult to find and make friends and to attain those friendships over the years. You realise that people are selfish and as long as it benefits them, they actually don’t care that much that they made it out to be.
You begin to see people for who the really are, and there is no more hiding behind masks or faces or social media. It’s a hard pill to swallow, it might feel very isolating and depressing, but there are so much better out there waiting for you.
I just have to be patient, I know my tribe of people is out there somewhere. Being a stay at home mom, it’s hard to found common ground with the friends you thought you knew, who you grow apart from, cause there are no common ground anymore, or anything that holds substance.
To anyone out there reading this. You are not alone. It’s okay if friends grow apart, it only means that the best kind of people are out there also waiting patiently.
