I try to keep my blog content light and happy, full of fashion nuggets, food, and good times. But I also believe in being honest with my readers, and occasionally sharing some of the less pleasant times in my life.
A close friendship of mine ended recently. I am still confused on exactly how or why it ended, and I guess I may never really know. An event took place a few months back that hurt my feelings deeply. I tried to ignore how I felt, and let it go, but I could not. I expressed (nicely) my hurt feelings to my friend. She didn't like what I had to say, and I suppose that was the end of our friendship.
From what I've gathered, this friend has moved on nicely, has a bunch of new friends, and is doing just fine. Honestly, I can't remember the last time I felt this disposable. She was one of the first people I knew when we first moved here, and I was very close to her and her family. It really broke my heart.
I've lived in Tennessee for about 2 years now, and have made some great friends as well. But it is always traumatic when a close friendship ends, especially among women. It is something I have not experienced since I was 16 years old, as I value my girlfriends so very much.
Well, there it is. Honestly, I think I posted this for myself more than for anyone else. I am letting this friendship go with love and well wishes. It is time to remember the good times, and move on towards the future. I think the below quote sums it all up.
“Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.” - Dr. Seuss
