My only friend I had left decided that we needed to take a break (She told me this on the 11th of this month). She reassured me that it's not because of me being too much (Which is why others have left in the past)... I'm scared that she'll never come back. I feel I'm a horrible friend because she's going through some stuff and me being me was adding to that.
I know the feeling. Two of my friendships ended the past year. It's a hard transition, especially with one of my friends because we have been talking on a regular for 21 years. She recently had her first child and got married.
I do my best to remind myself to treasure those who treasure me. When I think of my friendship ending with her I think of the quote, ...” you never ever have to inspire anyone to meet you on the bridge”…-Nayyirah Waheed.
She was definitely one of my favorite people, but like I said, I keep reminding myself to put my energy into those who invest in me. I know if I put myself in the right settings that I will meet the right people. It's still painful, but something I'm doing my best to accept.
