Do you ever feel like one of your friends, maybe even someone you dated for a while, is avoiding you… ignoring you for no reason… just disappeared without a word…
Yeah. I’ve been dealing with that.
I may grow attached to people very quickly, form strong bonds faster than most, but those connections are damn important to me. They may be rapid, but they run deep. And when someone who I feel one of those great friendships and connections with just up and leaves… well, it hurts. A lot.
I had it happen this summer, with the swell guy. But he’s recently appologized, admitted that he pulled a dick move, and does feel sorry. So we’re talking again. And I’m glad to have that friend back.
But I’m still dealing with it now. And I’m starting to think that take steps away from them might be beneficial. If they don’t want to talk to me, acknowledge me… then maybe it’s best if I do the same. Not out of spite, but for the sake of my heart.
What do you do when you feel like you’re losing a friend? Do you let it slide, or do you fight?
I brought up the issue once. But I guess… I don’t know.
One thing’s for sure… I am damn grateful for the friends who are active in my life, whether they’re in Chicago, Indy, Boston, LA, moving to Miami, grad school….
