    This One Hurt

    My ex-best friend, lets call her 'K', and I used to be the best of friends. We did everything together it was like we were joined at the hip. Then she turned on my best friend now. (We all used to be great friends). She made up stories and twisted her words and basically made us...

    I Can't Argue

    . Not with my friends. We don't bicker, we don't fight. I've lost too many to worry about the little things. There is always a possibility of them or me dying tomorrow, so I always leave a door open for them. I know this because between the ages of 13 and 15, two of my friends...

    Different Ways

    I've lost friends in my life.  Some I've lost to death, which killed a small part of me at the same time.  Some I've lost to time, and I felt a part of me whither away as they whithered from my life.  And some I've lost to anger, and differences between us...

    Not What You Might Think

    When I say I've lost friends, I don't mean through death, nor is my situation really comparable to ElLagarto, who lost his drinking buddy friend. I went through about 7 incredibly difficult years, where it seamed it was one thing after the other. I would say it started with my...

    I could say it's my fault,

    but really it's theirs too. My so called best friend wants me to except her for all her faults and all the stuff she's done to me and around me. I was angry for a long time, but now I'm okay with it. I don't need her or any of the others that are just like her.
