I’m not sure if anyone past their teenage years has experienced this (or maybe early 20s) but has anyone who has been (or already has) gotten into the spirit of getting a better body lost friends through it?
After putting my feet down and eating, thinking, and shitting muscle for the last three weeks, I have lost contact with a lot of my older pals who most likely wouldn’t have supported me through getting ripped. Hell, after all was said and done, I only have one friend that I hang out with.
But my dad always told me, “Justin, you’re eighteen. Soon you’ll find out that through your social network of friends, you’ll end up middle-aged with only two, really good friends that you’ll trust more than your wife.”
So is it true? Am I just entering that phase where I find myself, and as a result, become a man and realize that some people are just burdens? I mean, it’s sad. These people I speak of I have been friends with for four years, we’ve been through a lot of shit. But thinking about it, they won’t be going anywhere except the liquor store.
