We all have or have had that one friend who was the friend for everything. A best friend, or the closest thing to a best friend. There when you need them, you when they need ect. Unfortunately unexpected events in life can cause negative effects and impact the relationship to the point you see eachother as nothing but strangers. It can be almost as devistating as breaking up with a boyfriend to lose a best friend.
This happened in my life, we had friends we considered best. Friends we spent holiday dinners with, birthdays or just shoot the breeze. An unfortunate series of events occurred causing this friendship to split up. Feelings were hurt and emotional wounds that at the time could not be healed with a simple apology. Needless to say we haven’t spoken to eachother in a very long time.
Yesterday we brought our kids to the park and imagine who was there. The girl I used to refer to as a best friend.
Our daughters knew eachother before but haven’t seen eachother for a while. They recognized eachother, played together. This little event brought back memories of the good times we had as friends.
We spoke breifly upon leaving as the girls didn’t want to go home. Awkward situation at it’s best.
It’s a complicated situation, why we lost touch etc but it was nice to see the kids playing again.
This morning I recieved an email. My old friend initiating conversation for a coffee visit. Took the visit, i’m not sure what will happen but as forgiving and sensitive as I am when it comes to people who had an impact on my life, it’s nice to know we don’t have to walk on eggshells if we happen to cross paths.
Keeping civil is better than acting out in an immature way. Less conflict and I am not one for confrontations of the negative type.
