Why do I drop friends so easily?

Answered by Michael Wilson

Well, let me start by saying that I can relate to your question. I have gone through phases in my life where I’ve found myself quickly losing interest in people and dropping friends easily. It’s not something I’m particularly proud of, but it’s just the way things have been for me at times.

One possible reason for this is that I tend to be a bit of an introvert. I enjoy spending time alone or in small, intimate settings with close friends or family. Large social gatherings or constantly being surrounded by people can drain my energy and make me feel overwhelmed. As a result, I may not invest as much time or effort into maintaining friendships, leading to them fading away.

Another factor could be that I’m currently in a busy phase of my life. I have a lot on my plate with work or personal commitments, and building new friendships or maintaining existing ones may not be my top priority at the moment. It’s not that I don’t value friendships or the people in my life, but sometimes other aspects of life take precedence.

Additionally, I’ve noticed that as I’ve gotten older, my mind has become a bit more fickle. When I was younger, I used to be more easily captivated by new people and experiences. However, as I’ve grown and gained more life experience, I’ve become more discerning and selective about who I choose to invest my time and energy into. This may result in me losing interest in people more quickly if I don’t find a deeper connection or shared interests.

Of course, these are just some possible explanations for why I may drop friends easily. It’s important to remember that everyone’s preferences and priorities are different, and what may be true for me may not necessarily apply to others. It’s also worth noting that this is a temporary state for me, and I may go through phases where I become more open and invested in building lasting friendships.

The reasons for why I drop friends easily are multifaceted and personal to my own experiences and preferences. It’s not something I can easily pinpoint to a specific cause, but rather a combination of my introverted nature, current life circumstances, and evolving mindset. It’s important to be understanding and accepting of oneself, while also being open to the possibility of forming deeper connections in the future.
