I’m leaning toward losing a friendship. We met at work 7 years ago. Three years ago I quit that place. Amy and I have traveled together for a few conferences. She’s a kind person. Not that fun. Now she has a boyfriend, so all her spare time is taken. That leaves little time for us to keep a bond. The last time we traveled together, we had challenges on the subway routes. I detected ageism; as if I were incapable of navigation. It hurt. Also I could see I was cast in my familiar “little sister” role. Her choices mattered.
