51. Growing apart.(100in100)

This idea scares the hell out of me. the idea that love can turn into indifference because of people growing apart, growing into new people that aren’t able to recognise each other despite all the intimacy and strong bonds their old selves have built together.

It’s an idea so absurd I won’t be able to grasp even if I live and witness it twice and thrice and one thousand times.

It’s sad, disturbing but equally necessary.

Indeed, I find that not moving on on people you grew apart from can be toxic and unhealthy for both of you.

And that’s what scares me the most: the obligation to move on, move apart from people that were once the centre of your life…for the best of both worlds.
