Okay so anyway, once upon a time I had a really good friend, who happened to be a boy, and if we weren’t together we were at least in contact with one another, basically all the time. Do you want the background on our friendship and when it was good? Because it was really good. He was my person, I literally went to him with everything. Then, he changed. He changed right before my eyes and if I hadn’t met Katie and Lindsay I don’t know what I would’ve done.
Senior year started off differently, we didn’t have every class together, and for whatever reason he was becoming more popular. Popularity is a scary thing, especially when people aren’t used to it and it comes fast, it’s suddenly all they crave. That’s what happened to him. Suddenly I wasn’t good enough, out of no where I was less than second best. For a while I had no idea how to accept or handle this sudden change. We would go weeks without talking and when we finally did talk it ended in a huge blow up, typically on my part. Not a healthy friendship. If you ever find yourself in a friendship or relationship that doesn’t make you happy, get out, it’s not worth it, trust me. The last tip off for me was a letter that explained to me that I was a hindrance to his climbing of the social ladder, I couldn’t do it anymore. I couldn’t be friends with someone who thought that little of me, it wasn’t worth my time.
To lose someone who was such a big part of my life was almost worse than any heartbreak that I have ever experienced. It was hard going through something and not having your best friend right there with you, it was like losing part of me. However, I knew he was a detriment to my well being so I forced myself to move on, I wasn’t about to stick around and wait for him to grow up. I’m not going to lie and say it was easy, it wasn’t. There were some days that I just wanted to call him and ask him for advice, or try and be friends again, but I knew better. Someone who calls you once when you suddenly can’t be friends anymore, isn’t worth your time, move on.
People change and sadly we are forced to move on. You aren’t always going to be “best friends forever” with people who are important to you now. If something isn’t working don’t force it, just move on because it’s really not worth it. Time will show who your real friends are.
So I’m not sure where this came from, but yep so here’s a serious post.
Thanks for reading guys!
