Flashback Friday: Losing Friends because of Life

Yesterday, I ran into some old friends. I am at an early childhood conference and I knew that they were going to be here. I saw their names in the conference program, knew that they were presenting and got anxious right away.

I haven’t talked to or seen these friends in 4 years. Friends that decided to cut me out, because of life. Yesterday when I saw them at a restaurant, I noticed them first. I went right up to their table and said “HI”. I wasn’t embarassed, sad or nervous. Two of them gave me a big hug and kisses and the other one, just politely smiled. The one that politely smiled is the one who did the cutting, the one who was my best friend, a bridesmaid in my wedding.

Now that it has happened, I’m fine. As my husband said if you see them, they will either ignore you or you will catch up, either way your life doesn’t change! He was right.

I hold this sadness in the pit of my stomach.  It has been there for 3 1/2 years.  I still think about it every day, dream about it and get upset about it.

Anyway, I received a really long text explaining her point…

  1. This is really messed up! How could real friends walk away like that? I’ve lost friends over the years because of distance and schedules but not on purpose! And if I saw any one of those friends we’d be thrilled to reconnect. It sounds like they were very selfish but I wonder if the one friend didn’t manipulate the others. I’m sorry this happened to you but seriously you can find better friends than that!
