I completely agree with this. People change as they get older and sometimes, those changes make people grow apart. I actually think the idea of "best friends forever" is unhealthy and unrealistic and we should discourage teenagers from using the term. People who are unprepared for the fact that it's normal for friendships to change can be devastated when it happens. It's not wise to put such a big expectation on any one friendship.

I agree as well.
