Growing Apart...or Growing Up?

I don't know what to do with a relationship that I seem to be outgrowing. A relationship that was with my best friend. And now? we have very little in common. Conversations are short. Because we just don't live in the same world. Our peers are different. Are in a different place in life. We used to do everything together, now we barely see each other. In the beginning we could talk for hours, now neither of us have much to say. We might talk about how our day was, kids, family...? But there's no conversation. We just seem to have outgrown each other. Not for lack of love or trying. But in order to really salvage the relationship, we'd both have to make some major life changes. Changes I'm not willing to make right now. I am in a good place in my life and it obviously centers around my children and career. We just happen to be on different paths...I think we both notice the difference...I'm just the only one willing to admit it. I just don't know how to fix us.

This post actually describes several people in my life right now...and it's probably not you.
