Sometimes It Happens...Friendship is very important to me. I treasure all of my friends for different reasons because they are all special in their own ways. However, sometimes in life you meet someone who claims to be your friend and all the while there is some underlying motive, some untruth, deceit, and eventually betrayal. Betrayal comes in many forms. Breaking a way from a friendship that evetually becomes negative and hurtful is the right thing to do for me. I am not always happy about it, especially when it ends in a negative fashion. I feel that isn’t really necessary. I can walk away from a friend that has caused me hurt/grief and not inflict the same on them. Why is that necessary in the grand scheme of things? It isn’t. They weren’t really your friend to begin with. I don’t believe you have to tear someone apart or break them before walking away.
Maybe a manual on how to be a friend would be a great thing! The quality of what we all expect in friendship should be high for all of us. Being a friend is being there, being supportive, challenging you at times when you need it but at the end of the day providing each other with unconditional love and support. Recently, I have lost a friend because of reasons I will not mention in this story however suffice it to say this person had their best interest at heart, not mine and they chose a path that resulted in the consequence of this friendship being destroyed. If you don’t care for me then just go and I will do the same.
Friendships come and go and I am ok with that.
