I Lost My Best Friend

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,113 People

    I thought I was helping him out

    when I talked to his man for him, because I really want them to be together and work out. I ruined it for myself, because now he won't talk to me. I don't know if he ever will again.

    They say you meet lifelong friends in college

    and I thought Krystin and Zane were those friends, I thought we'd be friends for life. Unfortunately, I was wrong. Instead, they decided to drop me when I needed them most. All they did at the end was put me down and make me hate myself. Hell, these douchebags drove me to check...

    So, I call him just a person,

    because we have been romantic for about a year, but never officially. I couldn't get a hold of him for a few days, and naturally, I was worried. He does get himself into bad things. But the reality, it's so much worse. I got a call today, and when I heard his voice on the other...

    Its about my BFF. We are BFFs

    since 10 years. But when we were 12, she went to another country. And after that she changed completely. She is now like "I don't care". We are connected via internet. She is now always talking about her crushes. No matter what I say, she gets very irritated. I am mildly...

    Hey, my name is Daniel Michael R,

    I have hypopituitarism and this is the story of my best friend, the only girl that ever loved me. Her name is Samantha J. McClain, she was born on the same day as me, in the same hospital, some may say coincidence but I believe it to be Fate. From my very first year in primary...

    that my sister/best friend had been in accident and was in a coma. 16 days later they pulled the plug, and my best friend was gone forever. A piece of me will always be broken. It has been a year and a half and it hurts exactly the same. I cry for her all the time. 7-28-13...

    I've lost multiple best friends.

    One to cancer and three to suicide. I can't imagine the pain they were going through, but now it's very painful for me. Luckily, I've mostly moved on emotionally, although I'll always remember them.

    I had a best friend who was the closest person

    to me in the world. We'd talk all the time, even when we weren't together, we'd text each other from "good morning" till "good night". Ever since I decided to move to the city next door to live with my boyfriend, things weren't the same. It gradually felt like she was...

    Friday February 21, 2014 I lost my best friend

    of 18 years. The one who cheered me on the sidelines at my baseball and soccer games. The one who would give me rude looks when I got a Yahtzee before she did. The one who I would text and talk about the NASCAR race that was happening at that very moment. I lost someone who was...
