While running today, the song “Somebody That I Used to Know” by Gotye came on.
I didn’t cry. You should be proud about that…
However, I couldn’t help but think of a few people in my life who drifted away from me.
One moved away without even saying goodbye.
One has completely shut me out…I think I’ve seen this person 4 times in the last two years.
Another has made a decent effort to keep in touch, but it feels forced.
I suppose part of growing up is growing apart…
But when I love someone, I love hard.
My friends are my family.
So with each of these fading friendships, I feel like I am losing part of myself.
“But you treat me like a stranger and it feels so rough”
It’s like a break-up. I’ll find myself looking at their pictures…remembering our old memories.
So many memories.
As I’m writing this post, I’m somehow finding the courage to smile. I know that some friendships are “over” – but others are just starting. And I couldn’t be happier about the friendships I’ve developed over the last year.
Everyone is in (or out) of your life for a reason.
