I was watching the Today show this morning. And one of the topic’s was how to let go of a friendship. It was interesting to me since I had just found this note on facebook. It was from someone I have known since I was 16 years old. Our path in life has been very different, so to blend our reality of life has been hard. But we have tried. On the show it shared the many ways people let go of the relationship. Some people confront, others just kind of fade away. Others stay in a toxic friendship because they do not want to hurt anyone. But whatever way they chose, it is painful.
This was the note I received after 51.
Why would I even share this….maybe because I am mad! Maybe because it hurts! Maybe because I hope it will help someone. But for whatever reason..this is her truth no matter how I feel. Did I fail this person? yes, because I could not be the person she needed me to be.
