We tend to build friendships with people who share common interests and values, have gone through the same difficulties, and support each other equally.
We are selective about friends because not everyone is able to exchange thoughts and feelings with us.
As time passes, you will probably feel it is difficult to stay friends with some people. Moving on from some friendships simply means you’ve understood the purpose of real friendship.
Let go of the friendships that you can hardly maintain. You can keep the good memories, but moving on is a way to help you get closer to true friendships that serve you both.
Accept that the self-centered person might never consider your needs first. As much as this friend or lover means to you, know that they have no regard for others’ feelings or welfare. They can have moments of generosity and charm, but for the most part, they simply lack the skill or willingness to be thoughtful and considerate.
