You attract your friends by who you are.

However, as you evolve into a smarter version of you, you start losing friends.
Because they don’t resonate with you anymore.
Because they are a different human now.
Because you are a different human now.

No one is at the wrong place. However, no one is at the same place either.

Gain is always accompanied by loss. Sometimes you like that loss. Other times you don’t like it, and still have to go through it.

You cannot be smart and yet have a ton of friends. Sad, yet the truth you must know.
