Still Don't Know Why

We were friends. Had dinner at each other's houses. Kept each other's kids over night. Even had Easter with your whole family.

Then, it just stopped. Our girls are still friends, but not as close. We see each other all the time at soccer games, school, with other friends. We make small talk, we laugh, we still enjoy each other's company. But for the life of us, we still don't know what happened.

Was it something we said? Something we did? Or was it that we were the ones who stopped calling? Were you just being polite all those times?

I want to ask, I want to know why. Yet the words get stuck. Did you even notice? Do you even care?

I wish I could coax the words out of me and just ask the question. But deep down I know, painfully so, this is something between all of us that will always remain unsaid.

No TakenHeart, it's not just you. There are questions I should ask, I simply can't bear to hear the answers. It's difficult to willingly invite the pain in.

What goes unsaid can haunt you.

Hi, it's funny how we can have friends and then they suddenly just drift away. I have had friends like that and it really hurst. You wonder if they were ever a true friend in the first place. It's hard but I think you can't blame yourself for what has happened. You have to just move on and if the other person does come round oneday that's great. Sometimes things go on in people's lives and they don't tell you anything because a) they are embarrassed or b) they are afraid.<br />

I hope I have helped you on this one and I know what you are going through. I lost 2 good friends when they got married. It was like I didn't exist in their lives. I am getting married in 3 months time and I'm not inviting these girls because they never came back in my life. I am sure they are aware that I am getting married but it's their problem. All that matters now is the friends I have now and the ones that do care.<br />
