In many ways, losing a friendship is just as painful as losing a romantic relationship. Maybe because lovers can come and go across a lifetime, but it is our friends who see us through our most vulnerable times. So when a deep friendship ends -- or even just changes shape -- allow yourself grieve. Because being close and letting go are two of the most important things friendships teach us. ❤️

Because you stopped being a friend

This is perfect. I did my best. I repeatedly asked if things were ok a you drifted apart. Go be with the friends you care about because my putting the effort I've been putting in to our failing friendship in to something that really matters.
