Re: Over-dependency on friends and relatives
I'm not sure this is really something that needs to be directly addressed, unless she's getting upset with you for being too clingy or needy. Sometimes people move on with their lives, whether we want them to or not, and it's our job to deal with it. Just because she's in your life less doesn't mean she can't still be just as important.
You're quite right, of course; I just wondered if I should explain my reasoning and apologise for my unrealistic expectations, or if I should just let it go. We haven't been arguing or anything, but I did get the sense towards the end that I was grating on her a bit. I'm not sure whether to tell her of my conclusions or just make the change in my perceptions and carry on.
