Friends, They Come And (Please Don't) Go!

While I was writing a post this morning, a long time friend who I lost contact with just recently sent me a chat message in Facebook. It was so long ago since we got in touch with all the time difference (she's in Canada) and work getting in the way. The session just brought so many good and bad memories and in my own way, I felt like the friendship got rekindled. That's how I came about to writing this post. The thing is, I have a problem. I find it hard letting friends go. I mean I do understand that people need to go about in their own lives, and at some point you really have to let them go. When my closest friends got married, or moved abroad, it's just unbearable for me for some time and I really find it hard to wrap my mind around of them being... well... gone. I think I invest way too much emotions than I should when I relate to friends. For the most part, I'm scared that distance and circumstances would change our friendship, and mostly it does. And that's just sad. Is it asking too much if you ask them to keep in touch with you every once in a while? Oh jeez, maybe I just need a girlfriend to get my mind of some things that I should let go.

It really is hard to let special people in your heart go. But, like what you've said... Some needs to leave and we need to let them go as well! I've been in the same situation. Though we didn't moved abroad, but we moved in the province from the city where I actually met friends and my best friend too. It has been 5 years since I saw her and it is just once in a blue moon that she message or text me.. and it hurts seeing them slowly forgetting you or it is right to say slowly removing you from their system and there you are, cherishing all those memories you've made together and it hurts seeing them being happy without you. HAHA! What I've mentioned maybe a bit not related to what you've discussed.. Apologies! I just carried away!

Me too, when I was younger, I'm like that,I really feel sad being away with friends. Later however, when I got a family, still I maintain friendship but no longer so close to them realizing it hurts losing friends who are so close to you.
