After graduating high school, most people move forward and begin to start a new chapter of their life, as some might put it. Young adults are often able to go to college, start work, travel, and more. Young adults often begin to start their adult lives, however while some young adults keep the ties to other students and friends from high school, others do not.
High school is definitely a time of growth. Those teenage years in high school not only physically transform a person but mentally stimulates them as well, encouraging one to focus on their academics as well as learn so much about themselves in a short period. Being a young adult is hard, and a true transition at that, but having others around makes the process easier. During high school, students are almost forced to be in a social environment, encouraging social behavior and interaction. High schoolers are surrounded by other high schoolers they have been growing up with for years, making these friendships deep and real. While some of these friendships are everlasting, others are not.
For some, moving beyond high school is a must. Some people in highschool, care about friendships while they are relevant, but when college comes around and people move around, friendships become shaky, and some are easily broken. As time and space separates a friendship, the relationship changes. From personal experience, keeping close connections to people thousands of miles away, even with all the smart technology, is a hard task to endure. When two people move towards living different and separate lives, they have different interests in a relationship they once had, and more interested in creating new ones.While no one is to blame for this unfortunate process, some people are more inclined to keep in touch with close friends from high school than others. As time goes on, so do people’s lives, and as things are always changing throughout time, connecting with someone who is experiencing different changes than yourself is a hard task to accomplish. While for some, keeping those high school relationships in tact is essential, for others those relationships from high school make their current lives harder rather than easier. This change is inevitable, and people must always be ready for changes, such as old relationships throughout their lives, and the different chapters they encounter.
