Have you ever wondered when you should let go of a fading friendship? I have. I liked reading this post by the author of MWF Seeking BFF. It doesn’t answer your question, but it is nice to relate to another person. I think that fading friendships (especially when you have to make a decision as to whether or not to end a relationship) is one of the toughest things I’ve had to do in my grown up life.
Speaking of changes (not endings) in friendships, here is a beautiful post written by one of my former colleagues at Fairfield.
I’m currently living vicariously through Melissa’s summer travel abroad. She wrote a few goals for her travels, but I wanted to share them because I also think they are pretty smart travel goals.
How cute is this gorilla?Â Seriously. He is so cool.
This is an interesting read I found in The New Yorker: Everything is Fiction.

Thank you for that first link. I spent the morning writing–and angsting–about a friendship I ended earlier this year. The woman was my best friend, whom I met in New Orleans. We evacuated Katrina together. And now, even as I type this, Issac is lashing the city, seven years to the day. It’s got me thinking about her and feeling all overwrought and guilty.
Glad you liked the link. I’ll be honest, I’m not a pro at ending friendships, but I do believe it’s necessary at times. Why be brought down by a failing friendship? It is a tough lesson. One that I’m not sure I’ve completely learned, but a valuable one I say the least.
