For most of our friendship we lived in different cities, so outside of a few visits back and forth, most of our conversations were on the phone.
As I thought about our conversations and the hours of catching up, the feelings came over me that I left with every time I talked to her.
She wasn’t an optimist who would tell you how great things were going … Over the course of our friendship, I learned a tremendous amount about life, love and toughness.
While she would certainly share, her energy was focused on investing in others.
Last week, an email popped up from one of the best people I know. The million things I want to say to her flood my mind.
We had several great months together and he said he loved me and was making long term plans with me. And yes, this is going to be a transition time for him and that is probably a good thing for you.
Only a month after all this he is backing away, acting distant and telling me we need to sit down and have a long talk. He is closing up his old life and moving to a new life with you. I think that I am suffering from a bit of depression and it has affected how I am responding to his comments.
Thankfully we had the friendship we did and expressed how important we were to each other.
