We all have to learn from our mistakes in life. That’s how we become better…everything. From friends to romantic partners to employees to bosses to parents. But, have you noticed that there are some people who just don’t seem to learn? They’re always burning a bridge and losing a friendship, but never stopping to reflect: “Could I be causing this?” I don’t know how one becomes a full grown adult without ever considering the possibility that, sometimes, they do things wrong. I don’t know how the mentality that everything is everybody else’s fault survives past ones early twenties (or teens, really) but for some people, that seems to be the case. When everyone else around you is growing up and willing to change, and you’re not, you’ll wind up losing them. On that note, here are friendship mistakes you shouldn’t make past the age of 25.

Forgetting you had plans

That’s what calendars are for—both physical, the one in your phone, and the many, many apps one can use to schedule their lives. It’s what sticky notes are for. It’s what alarms on our phones are for. Part of being an adult is taking the steps to ensure that something reminds you of your plans.
