    My best friend at the time

    and I had known each other since the 6th grade. She was always the person to laugh while I was the shy one. Although I was being bullied by the class around the time, she still chose to be my friend. We befriended my other bestfriend and it was love at first sight. We was...

    My best friend of over a decade won't speak to

    me. She has completely disappeared from my life it seems. Ever since we met we've spoken everyday without fail and now, suddenly, absolutely nothing. She ignores my attempts of contact. I know she's alright, I know there is nothing going on that would make it difficult or...

    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...

    He died a little over two months ago in a car

    accident with his little brother. They say it was the worst head injury they'd ever seen. Only one to ever know everything about me, and he was here one day and gone the next.

    Imagine the worst things you think about

    yourself. Now how would you feel if the one person that you trusted the most in the world not only thinks them too, but actually uses them as reasons not to be with you?

    it sickens me that I lost him,

    No matter how good a friend is,

    they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that. Those who injured us did only what they knew how to do, given the conditions of their lives. If you don't learn to forgive, then you allow those ancient injuries to continue their hold on you...

    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.
