To The Friends I’m Not Friends With Anymore

The friends I’m not friends with anymore can fall into two categories: the ones I had a falling out with and the ones I grew apart from.

To the ones I grew apart from, I appreciate our minor communication. I appreciate the likes on Instagram and the occasional comments on Facebook. I’m glad I can still see what you’re up to even though we’re in different cities, states, or countries. Even though we don’t speak anymore, there is a mutual respect and a quiet friendship that still lingers.

To the ones I had a falling out with, I’m sorry. We were always too different and now especially we are too different. Our friendships were always out of convenience, never love and respect. Even if one big falling out didn’t end our friendship – the little ones leading up to it did.

In either instances, I hope the best for all of you. I hope you can forgive me for not being a good friend. I’m still learning about myself every day. And I hope you look back on the positive aspects of our friendship. It took me a long time to get to that point, for a while all I remembered was the negative.

I hope you’re doing well, I hope you’re living out your dreams, I hope you’re doing better. Even if we don’t speak anymore, there is always a little part of me that will care. That would do anything for you if you truly needed it.

To the friends I’m not friends with anymore, thanks for the memories. You deserve the best in life. I’m not sure if it matters – but as long as you’re happy, I’m happy for you and proud of you.

  1. I’m switch on/off like Laurel. I find that it is good not to be bitter. We have our own lives to lead and that requires a lot of attention and energy. Your attitude is positive and respectful. I admire that.

  2. So eloquent, and so precise. You’ve put in to words the very thoughts many of us have had, but may have struggled to either properly identify or translate into words. Beautifully done!

  3. Rosie – first time here, thanks to Holly at Bloggity Ramblings. Wonderfully accurate. I love the idea that things happen and it’s not always productive to try and break down the why and how. Liked and followed.

      1. I’ve been to your place before! I remember now. The list of 10 things that came after your breakup. Brilliance. I’ll see you back here for sure. Finding (or refinding) a good blog is like finding the best local pizza joint in a new town. You keep going back as often as … well, whenever you’re hungry.
