Feeling let down and learning to LET IT GO!

Wednesday, June 03, 2009

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you thought you knew someone so well that they would always be a part of your life. That 'special' friend. One you have known for lots of years and just figured they would always be there till the end of time?

I recently experienced this and am working on 'letting go' of what was and focusing on what is. My experience is with a friend that I've known for 30+ years. One I thought that I would grow old with only to have her make excuses as to why she has no time for our friendship. From my perspective, real friends don't do that so I have been dealing with the grieving of losing a loved one is how I can explain it. I know, in time, this too shall pass. I will never forget her and wish her all the best in the life she chooses for herself which currently is very dark but refuses to help herself in any way, shape or form.

So with this blog entry, I close another chapter of my life and move on to those who inspire and help me feel alive. I'm happier and healthier than I've ever been and I choose to live out my life in this fashion.

Thanks for letting me vent.

    It is sad but I commend you for not trying to hold on to something that needs to be released. Maybe in time you will find your paths cross again and you'll both be better for the absence.

    It's amazing to me to see how often something like this DOES happen. You are a different person, with different friends who fulfill your current needs and desires.

    Some long-time relationships find it too difficult to continue the friendship. Is this bad...no, just normal. Is it sad, yes! Not only because of the departure, but the feelings of betrayal that lay latent within each of us. This is the worst feeling there is. Deep seated and dark and disturbing. Letting this go is an act of forgiveness. Not only on the other person, but with yourself. Learning to let go is the lesson she is teaching you. Thank her for this.

    I thank you for being such a great mirror for me. I just went through this exact same thing with my adopted sister Kit. Glad you are here so that we can help each other let go of the past and have successful presents.

    I will do my best to keep up with you and be there for maybe 31 years...how's that for a promise?
