Don't take it personally if people in your life go their own way. People grow and change and that's a beautiful thing. People often get stuck doing the same thing those core people in their lives do. Many times family, friends, classmates, work associates, etc can keep you from learning and growing in ways that are more satisfying and fulfilling for you. Be conscious and aware of who you are and don't fall prey to what others think you should do. Most importantly stand up to those core people in your life and be free to develop your own ideas, thoughts, beliefs and philosophies on how you choose to live and conduct your life.
