Day 9's Truth?
Someone you didn't want to let go, but just drifted . . .
This is a tough one.
I guess maybe my friend T. I love her, seriously love her, but we stopped going to the same church and I miss seeing her all the time. We live in the same town, but we have way different circles of friends. Like she has lots of friends and I really have only a few friends in this town. Most of my friends are long distance friendships. Really because I am not from here, I don't have as many connections as she does. My church family has more friends than it used to, rebuilding relationships after the massive fallout that we had is sometimes challenging. But I love all of them and have really gotten close to a lot of them.
None of them are like T. and I were. We did everything together, talked all the time, vented to each other, helped each other through the whole college thing (non-traditional students) and the whole raising kid thing, and all the church things. We really were the best of friends, and then when we both moved to opposite sides of town, it really started to be different. We didn't see each other as much and then when she stopped going to church with me, we really didn't see each other any more and we just drifted. . . .
So I guess that's it, kind of sad, but it happens.
