Out growing your friends

Is there anyone out there who feels at times you have out grown your friends? As I've matured mentally and in age I feel that some of my friends and I no longer share some of the same interest and at times I feel like they are holding me back because they don't seem to want to move forward. What is hard for me is that these are friends that I have known for well over 15 years and we have been through a lot together. A part of me feels guilty for wanting to replace them with individuals that seem to have more in common with me now. Does anyone have any advice, suggestions or maybe going through something similar? If so please share your story and/or any suggestions on what you would do.

Sometimes I feel like that. But then I remember all that we have been thrugh together. There have been times where I have needed to take breaks from my friends, then I can get together with them again and appreciate them. But there have been many friends who have come and gone over the yeears. But I have a core set of friends that I have been friends with for over 15 years. Those kind of friends are valuable.
