A good friend may be going through a life change that has caused you to look at your own life differently. This kind of self-examination is very valuable, but it can also be a bit of a trap. Don’t spend too much time dwelling on the future. It will only isolate you from the here and now. You have to let yourself get caught up in the moment every once in a while. You can’t always be reflective or ponder the ins and outs of what you should do next.
