This friend let me down

We were neighbours and went to the same school. We were known in school as 'best friends' and this friendship continued till school life. We then parted ways. I went for further studies and she did her teacher's training. But I always had her in my mind and wanted to be in touch. Even then I felt she was not so keen for reasons best known to her. She got married in her teens and that meant a further distance. I got married too but after a few years but as luck would have it we became neighbours again. And did interact a bit here and there. We were buried in our own lives. Years passed and we lost touch. Still I had her in my thoughts. I was told she had settled down in New Zealand. I tried to get her contact details but did not succeed. However I jusrt go news that she had come down for a holiday. I was excited. Got her pone number and called her, She was as cold as a clam. Considering how close we were this sudden indifference set me thinking. Perhaps she was not happy in her life that she did not want to talk about? Perhaps she had secrets? Whatever............. I have closed the chapter. She will now be just a memory Any experience you can share? Wait a minute the phone is ringing and what do you know it is my friend who is on the line. Have you ever experienced such weird situations?

The only constant in life is change. Maybe you are right that maybe she has secrets or problems... Just keep praying to break the wall and be friends again.

Did you not read the last line in my post. Just as I was finishing the post my mobile was ringing and it was that friend on the lines. I cannot understand how we both thought of each other at the same time. I find it pretty weird.

Several of my close friends are like this. Perhaps we no longer have something in common. Or our lives are quite different. People pay attention to whether you are useful today and this is why I don't really appreciate. And therefore we can't go back to the past.

Most friends that we make throughout our lives are acquainted with us on a very superficial level. They interact with us when they can observe we have certain thoughts in common. But over time and experience our priorities change and we no longer have the same thoughts. Hence these people start distancing from us.

Specially now when there are so many things that keep us busy, things that do not interest another.

The effort was always one sided but I really did not know what kept her away and just as I was writing this post I get a call from her. I find it weird really.

@allknowing The change that we come across is not real change in their character.In her heart she may be like the old school girl.Life experiences that the family situations are what prevents her from going back to her old self.

You may be right. All cannot withstand what goes on in their life. After a chat with her I came to know she is on pacemaker

@silvermist She prefers seclusion it looks like. I was told she had visited her native land but never took the trouble to meet classmates

I think she may had some reasons but could not shared with you. Understanding a woman and the situation she face is not easy for men. I think you both had some strong connection that's why when you were thinking about her and wrote the post, she was also thinking about you and called you. So beautiful incident.

@allknowing I have lost some good friends like that. It just became awkward and forced when we interacted after years being not in touch. People change with time.

It is always interesting how over the yrs things happen and people you were once close friends with decide it is time to seek their attentions somewhere else. Awesome that she was calling you while finishing this post, and wishing you the Best with this.
