If your friends are moving away from you as you become more successful, there are two possible explanations.
- They were never very good friends in the first place
- Success is changing you, and not in a good way
Either way, the person you need to be taking a closer look at is yourself. If the friends you make aren’t very good friends, what does that say
about you? Are you so eager for acceptance you’ll make friends with any deadbeat or hustler on the make? Are you yourself poor friend material –
birds of a feather, you know? Or are you just so naive or romantic you never judge the company you keep, believing all men are your brothers? If so,
these are matters that need your attention.
If, on the other hand, it is success that is changing you in unpleasant ways – making you boastful, or arrogant, suspicious of others,
over-generous, or simply unavailable – obviously the solution, again, lies with you.
Either way, I wish you every success. Sometimes, as we pass through the stages of our lives, we need to move on from one set of relationships to
another. Also, one lives and learns. If there is anything in you deserving of friendship, you will make new (and, perhaps, better) friends.
