Friends usually come and go as they please, it's a fact of life.
It's not a good thing, and it doesn't always make sense, but there will always be people who can't handle it when a friend becomes happy or involved in a relationship.
For me, I honestly felt like there wasn't a good excuse to why my friends just dropped me. But to them, getting in a relationship was the end.
I've finally found a guy who makes me happy and treats me the way I should be treated.
You would think that would make my friends excited and happy for me but yet, instead of supporting me and being the good friends they claimed to be, they just up and ditched me.
Honestly, at first, I was beyond hurt.
I had made deep friendships with these people, bonds I never thought could break... but now I only learn about what is going on in their lives through Instagram photos and Facebook posts.
For so long I went back and forth in my mind on what I had done.
Was I with my boyfriend too much? Did l make them feel less important or like I didn't need them? Should I have been texting them more often?
But wait, why was I beating myself up? Why was I constantly blaming myself for them abandoning me?
They are the ones who left me. If they thought I was pushing them away or if I didn't need them, they should have communicated.
Cause that's what good friends do.
But really, it doesn't matter anymore. Starting this relationship was probably the best thing for me.
It showed me who my true friends are.
It showed me that finding happiness meant leaving people in the past and beginning new adventures with new, more loyal, people.
I will never forget the memories we created, but I can reassure you I am glad that I am not spending every day beating myself up over you anymore.
I now know the value of a good friendship, and I am still madly in love with the guy who helped me realize that.
I know that people come and go, and you were just one of the ones who had to go.
I'm not going to say I forgive you. But I will thank you for making my life so much better without you.
