As we grow older, we don’t lose friends, we just learn who the real ones are. – Unknown
Meaning of this Quote
When we have been in our school, we had a lots of friends. However, as we grew older, we lost a lot of them. It’s not because we actually lost them, it’s only when our circle got narrower than it was ever before!
It happens since we start learning who the real ones are! It was difficult for us to find out who were actually real and who weren’t when we have been young.
However, as we grew up, we started realizing the ones who were fake. We started witnessing the true faces of the people and thus, learned to distance ourselves from them. This doesn’t happen only with friends, it happens with our relatives as well.
Childhood was a time of innocence. We hardly understood the real ones at that time. All of our acquaintances seemed to be real to us then. On the other hand, as we started growing up, we got the ability to filter the ones who were real and discard the ones who were fake.
This happens because we become mature enough to justify the situations and analyze the people around us based on their actions towards us at times of difficulties.
We get to learn that people reveal their real faces only at the time of crisis and thus, having a lot of people in our contacts actually doesn’t matter to us any longer!
It’s better to have just a few real friends than to have a lot of them, who are actually doing nothing other than increasing our lists. Our outlook towards our lives changes with maturity!
