I live by this.

So true. An exact point of wisdom that I’ve been trying to find within myself.
I’ve always grew up feeling as if it was my responsibility to create relationships and keep them. When I felt like a relationship was drifting, I’d often blamed myself for relationships not working. Now, I realize that it isn’t my fault. I tried, but relationships can only go so far if only one person is pursuing it. Friends come and go, and it’s never certain that all friendships will last forever. I’ve learned to just let things go and prioritize what I need to do in my life, and if those who see me as worthy will try and work with me as well on this friendship. I’m too old for meaningless relationships.
