I do agree with the others, that sometimes it’s just that people get busy and don’t have time to talk to us, or time to come up with a good reply, and maybe given time and space, they will be able to get back with the reply needed. But sometimes it’s time to let someone go. People grow apart. It hurts like hell, but that’s an unfortunate part of life. It doesn’t mean that your friends don’t like you, they just moved on to the next part of their lives.
There’s a saying that I really really like. It goes something like this.
“People are in your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.”
People are there for either a reason (to teach you something in life), a season (to support you and for you to return support as long as they are in your life) or a lifetime (they may leave your life for a few years, but will always find their way back to you.)
Whenever someone leaves my life, and I’m finally far enough from the hurt to think reasonably to myself, I try to figure out what the reason was that they were in my life in the first place. What did they bring me? What did they give me that will help me to continue growing as I go forward? I actually lost two friends not that long ago. (I don’t enjoy being lied to…) One of them was in my life for about three years, and brought me some comfort while she was in my life. The other was in my life for about five years and brought me art. I learned a few things to do with art while I was with her.
Not everyone is meant to be a part of our lives to the end.
If nothing else, the people here care to listen, even if they don’t always have the best reply, or know how to reply.
I hope you are feeling better.
