You are only on one side – your own. Unfortunately, we are not true friends. I’m not sure we ever were. If you genuinely believe we were, then you may want to do some research on friendship. It is a two-way street, but you thought it was a one-way. A friend does not endlessly talk about themselves without asking how the other person is. A friend doesn’t hold a grudge but instead gives grace.
Even though I was your call when things got bad, it does not mean you were mine. A friend does not leave you when you need them most. They don’t turn their nose up at you or the things you do or say. Instead, they embrace you for who you are. That was never something you could do, and it was not fair for me to expect that of you.
You were never a friend but instead a disappointing waste of time. I feel nothing other than pity when I hear your name. You’ve only ever taken from me just like a thief. You’ve stolen my time and wisdom without anything in return. How is that fair? It is not.
Now it is time to go our separate ways. I am moving on to a new stage of life that you couldn’t possibly understand. I have to put myself and my family first, and you are no longer a priority, and you never will be again. It is time for you to grow up and stop putting your baggage on others.
