2. After a minute or so of awkward conversation, everyone leaves
For the past two years, I’ve had front-row seats to the slow, painful death of one of my most important friendships. There was no grand falling-out.
Life can get hectic very quickly, and it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle. What’s important is to take a step back.
A man is known by the company he keeps.
We learn, for the first time, that love isn’t easy and doesn’t happen just because we think it is right.
You were really close friends in the beginning because everything just clicked.
Friends can talk about things that make them happy. We talked about things that gave us joy. We talked about things that made us grieve.
I don’t know what happened between the 5 hour conversations and the 5 minute on-the-go coffee dates, but I’m just not the same friend I used to be.
You aren’t seeking the right answers, but you always ask the right questions. You are part of a herd that you never follow.
My New Year’s resolution was for 2014 to be the year that none of my friends died. It takes a lot of pressure off when you give yourself a resolution that you have no control over.
