    for no reason. People

    that I have relied on and trusted suddenly disappear from me. I never know why, but it's like they just drop off the face of the Earth! It hurts because I never know what's happened to them. I've got three friends left, and I used to have many. I'm grateful, don't get me wrong...

    I lost all my friends

    because of a relationship i was in. I was in this relationship for 8yrs and at the time, i thought he was the one but he wasn't. One of the problems we had was that my best friend was a male. We fought countless times and i always defended my friend. Now my relationship is...

    I'm so gutted that I have lost what I thought

    was a really good friend. I can't get it out of my head some of the things she said, like I'm spiteful and nasty which is something I'm not. My best friend says I'm better off without her but I miss her and miss going to visit her. I don't know what to do

    that sad moment when you realize most of your

    friends arent trustworthy and u can come up with a reason for every each one why you cant trust them. but nobody is perfect. but as u got older, u realize u cant completely open up to any friend like u did in early years. bkus everyone is driven by their own best self interest...

    Roses

    Roses are suppose to be red,while violets a shade of blue But whenever you're around me, that tends to be untrue My colours seem to lack the zest of a love that's meant to be My flowers have begun to pale - No red nor blue to see The love I once had for you was good if...

    I lost a friend today

    and it might take some time to get over, but I'll be fine without them. I guess we were just two very different people.

    It started last year

    when I lost a friend because he got a girlfriend. Now I've lost nearly all of my "brothers" to chicks. I'm starting to think I deserve it somehow.

    A close friend of mine doesn't talk to me much.

    He keeps me at a distance these days. Even when I call him, he is always in a rush to finish n hang up. He takes days to respond to my texts. I feel sad about it. So hard to let go people you care. Has anyone been through such? If so, wat did u do abt it?

    We live we learn. I admit some friendships I

    could of saved if I decided to be less stubborn. But some friends I say good riddance they took my friendship and treated it like ****. If they don't make a positive impact on your life, pay your rent your bills or clothe your kids relax! There not worth it

    A guy friend of mine blatantly ignores me ever

    since I gave him a thoughtful bday gift. He said he felt weird getting it from me. The gift was a simple beer mug with his name on it. That simple. Now that he has ignored me or literally ditched me after that, I don't care either. But I so want to ask him to pay me back the 2...

    I lost a friend again,

    today. This wasn't the first time happened to me but it hurts knowing that I am poor at keeping things close. It wasn't easy for me to find a person who wants to sit and listen. They do it, first, but then they will leave eventually for no reasons. Or I will leave because I...

    When You're Gay, No One Wants To Be Your Friend

    It's amazing to me how different people react when they find out that I like women. I tend to shy away from telling people just because it's really no ones business and I try to keep stuff to myself. (I know hard to believe when I pour everything out on the Internet, But you...

    Well looks like I'm done here.

    Rap just ain't the same since these ******** took over the rap game and they don't spit that well. I've lost my closest EP sister, JadedDivinity. Jade left for no reason, and she was all I had left. So it looks like my legacy is done. So farewell guys

    I shouldn't even try making friends anymore,

    seems like over time I lose all of my friends anyways. Usually to fighting or loss of contact over time. I won't lie, I miss some of them.

    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...

    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...
