“That shifts,” she continued. “Sometimes you can’t even really make sense of it. You’re just like, ‘Oh wow, I haven’t talked to that person in months.'”
“There’s kind of complicated feelings around it.”

“It’s totally a naturally aging [thing],” she added.
“When you’re young, you’re so in your own head,” Miranda told the New York Times. “You can’t imagine that people around you are having much harder struggles. You don’t expect things like that from the person in the room who’s making everyone laugh.”
