I had a random thought.
When you are friends with someone and then suddenly, you’re not friends anymore, does every good memory you’ve had with that person go away? The laughs and the good moments? Does every single compliment they gave you become invalid, because you no longer speak?
In high school, I had a friend who became an ex-friend, in the typical dramatic high school fashion. And after that, she hated me and my other friends. She said nasty things about us, while just a few months before she was encouraging and complimentary toward me. So what was the lie? Was it the past, or the present? The things she said or that she is saying now?
Because I admit, I had amazing times with this person, and other people like her. But then, there is a break. A slow pulling away or sudden snap and the friendship is over. It doesn’t mean those good memories go away, because I still look at photos and smile, just a little, because they were happy. Fun. But the feeling isn’t the same. The people in these photos don’t know what’s going to happen, the hard times ahead. They don’t know that the friendship is numbered. It’s bittersweet and leaves a sad taste in my mind. Because that moment is gone and doesn’t live on in the same way as it used to.
