Day 9 - Someone You Didn’t Want To Let Go, But Just Drifted

Story of my life, right here.  I've had a lot of people, friends especially, drift in and out of my life.  I've been married before DH, not something I mention too often online, and in my first wedding I chose not to have attendants for that reason.  I didn't want to have people photographed in my wedding party that I wouldn't have in my life years later.  I remember asking my mom (or dad, I'm not sure) about one of their attendants and they couldn't even remember their name.  I didn't want that to happen.


I have countless BFFs with whom I've drifted apart.  For some, it was a natural split, and with others we reached a breaking point.


Rather than list them by name, I'll list off initials:


K, B, M, J, R, S, B, F, K, K, M, M, V


As you can see, this isn't my first rodeo.  I've learned/tried not to take it to heart too much, and like I mentioned in my Day 8 post, I try to focus on those who have stood by me and who deserve my attention.  I'm sure most of us have heard that "friends come into our life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime."  I try to make peace with my splits, and know that these friends came into my life when I needed them (or when they needed me), and left when their time was up.  I hope they've found happiness, wherever their lives have taken them!

:( I think that "S" might be me. I miss having both you and Taryn around locally. Those were the good days. We did have some fun.

Actually, it's not. :) I know we've had some rough spots, but we're making a comeback!

"thumbs up" chalk that up to me being paranoid then... LOL

Relationships always do evolve over the time. I have been living here and there, all over the world. And at the end of the day the true friends are left.

Very true, Nina, very true. Trinnie (I mention her a bit on here) and I have been friends for 10+ years now! Love her to bits!
