But there is one of whom I would have never thought she'd do that, not keeping in touch I mean. When my friend and I saw each other in passing a few days ago, she knew that other friend as well, we talked about it. She hadn't heard of her for a long time as well. We were the ones who had to do the calling. I don't like the one way street relationships, I never did. I can keep some up for a while if I think they are worth it, and I really thought she was, but now I feel I am better than that, so did my other friend. We both stopped calling and now it's over and done with. At least I think it is.
But still... it keeps nagging somewhere. I have a hard time letting go of friendships that I thought were true friends. I thought she was a true friend. But having found so many friends online the last year (and yes you can make friends online!) and even meet some in real life, I now know what real friendship entails.
This friend who I have known also from the time when our boys became friends and went to school together and who has told me I understood her so well and I was her best friend, has just left me without saying a word. It all sounds so childish writing it all down like this, but when someone just leaves a friendship without saying a word it hurts.
