There is a theory that friendships last about 8 years. I suppose that's to make the loss of a close relationship feel normal and make one accept that people change. What do you do about the loss of closeness with a sister? Mine and I have subtly chosen different paths; or just different emphases on things we used to do. Now, I don't care much for shopping, I think, what is the point? We both have accentuated our inner essences: I am fast and impulsive, she is (so) slow and methodical. We try each others' last nerves. It's very sad.
