• To the best friend who’s leaving-

    by  • July 23, 2011 • * Safe for Work *, Fear • 41 Comments

    I wish that I could explain to you how much you mean to me. I was a completely different person before we met. I was quiet, shy, never fully trusting another person. You’ve shown me that it’s ok to be who I am, and that the people who really love me won’t think any less of me for it.

    I wish I could tell you how much I love you. But there just aren’t words, are there? The friendship we have is the kind that only comes along once in a lifetime. The kind where we can know what the other thinks and feels without saying a word. You mean everything to me- there really isn’t another way to put it

    I wish you nothing but the best in your new life. It breaks my heart knowing that I won’t see you every day. I genuinely hope that you find all the happiness you deserve.

    But I’m scared. I know it’s selfish, but I need you. And I need you to need me. It terrifies me that you could find someone else to pass the time with just talking like we have in your new life. Your friendship means more to me than anything else ever has, and I would be completely lost without it. I would like to think that I’m irreplaceable to you, and that there isn’t another person who could take my place in your life. But I’ve never thought that highly of myself.

    Please don’t replace me. Please remember to call me when you can. I’ll always answer, and I’ll always be there for you. No matter what happens.

    I love you to the moon and back

    All my love,
    Your broken-hearted friend

      You are everything. I know you think that my boyfriend has an input but to me, you are the greatest person there is. You are so incredible! We have never fought. Not properly, ever! And if we have it was my fault because I am a massive drama queen! Which you of course all ready knew.

      I know how it feels to think that you will be replaced. I can’t help but think that maybe someone from Mary’s will replace me. I love you so much, and you’re right there is no words to describe it! I gravitate towards you. You are so irreplaceable. I could never be as close to someone as I am to you, and no not even my boyfriend. (I couldn’t gossip about him to his face?) :L

      I wont replace you, simply because I don’t want to. I never will. You are so special to me! You are the only person I can call when things get crappy or if my mam shows her dark side.

      I do need you. More than you think! I can truly be myself and only myself around you! I don’t think I can be like that in my new life. No, I KNOW I cant be myself in my new life with anyone! I trust you with a million times more things than any of my other friends! Don’t you think its incredible that you managed to be one of the most IMPORTANT people in my life so easily?

      I am so genuinely sorry for leaving. I am. I can’t say it any other way! But please understand I’m not leaving you, I’m just leaving this place! You are way to incredible to be left behind! I have never been so close to someone in my entire life! I guess I took that for granted all the years we were together everyday.

      I love you. I always will. There is NO replacement for you. None. Its impossible!If I was replaced, of course, I would be the saddest person in the world. And that is no exaggeration. I will miss you terribly. There is no one, who could make my school days happier than you.

      All of my love and beyond,
      Your Also Broken-Hearted Friend

      You called me your “bestfriend” and you said no matter what ill always be that to you even if you arent mine. Where did we go wrong? Why did we let this happen? Its wasnt easy to do what i did. If i had the choice, id stay there with you. Everyday, those words “you left me” repeat in my head. I never wanted to hurt you. I never wanted things to be all messed up like they are now. I didnt want to leave but i had no choice.

      What did you want me to do? What did you want from me?

      This note could have been written by me- I’ve been having almost these exact thoughts about my good friend who just left. I want to be happy for her as she starts this new chapter in her life, and I am, but there’s also a selfish part of me that wishes she had just stayed instead. If she were to see this letter and didn’t look at the date, there’s a good chance she would think I wrote it.

      I’m selfish too. Things have been so fucked up. I need a new start. I need new people. I need to see new faces.
      Faces that won’t recognize me. People that won’t know who I am. Won’t judge me for what i’ve done.
      I love you. We are and always will be best friends.
      Nothing, not even distance, can change that. I’ll meet new people and so will you. We’ll always be in each others hearts. Ill always love you.
      Our friendship is more than gossiping and parties and movie marathons and cute boys. Its a bond. Stronger than any i’ve known.
      I wish you would happy for me. Happy that i finally have the guts to start afresh. I know everyones selfish but every sad look you give me weakens my resolve to leave.
      Be happy for me. Please.

      Good question. Maybe the main problem is that the heart needs more time to adopt. I could do what my heart desires. Just to learn, that my head was right and my heart was right too, but the person was someone without a heart…

      I have a true and loyal heart, so I have always followed it, believing others did also, but I have discovered that people with high moral conduct get manipulated, used, and hurt by some that can not find the true value of their own lives.

      That is why I said
      I wish
      my brain had a map
      to tell me
      where my heart should go
      Because my heart was mislead to believe that everyone was good.

      December 28, 2014 at 5:31 pm

      My god your so right… I never heard another person put it so well. My closest person, the one I care about he most, see’s me as an obstacle and has twisted my feelings every which way, when I wanted was to be loyal, supportive, and giving my all to that one person.

      It’s as you say, I was mislead to believe the world was full of good caring people, and it’s sites like these that make me believe hearts still love when everyone around me is as cold as ice. I could use that map, but it doesn’t exist, and it never will, like broken dreams that died so quickly after being born.

      When I was just a little girl,
      I asked my mother, “What will I be?
      Will I be pretty? Will I be rich?”
      Here’s what she said to me

      “Que sera, sera
      Whatever will be, will be
      The future’s not ours to see
      Que sera, sera
      What will be, will be”

      When I grew up and fell in love
      I asked my sweetheart, “What lies ahead?
      Will we have rainbows day after day?”
      Here’s what my sweetheart said

      “Que sera, sera
      Whatever will be, will be
      The future’s not ours to see
      Que sera, sera
      What will be, will be”

      Now I have children of my own
      They ask their mother, “What will I be?”
      Will I be handsome? Will I be rich?”
      I tell them tenderly

      “Que sera, sera
      Whatever will be, will be
      The future’s not ours to see
      Que sera, sera
      What will be, will be
      Que Sera, Sera!”

      I grieve for the feelings you have expressed. I hope you find a real way to communicate those feelings to the one you love. Find a way. Give it your best shot. Send a loving text, an email. Send something in the mail. Showup somewhere and let her know you care. Sometimes because of life and circumstances distance can be a problem but find a way to bridge that distance. There is always hope.

      From a best friend that left:
      It’s difficult. It’s selfish. But sometimes, you have to go. I helped you break out of your shell and realize that being you- whoever you are or whoever you may become is okay- but I have to go now.
      I have problems staying in one place, staying around the same people.
      I get this feeling that I have to leave and I have to run, to escape.
      I can’t let you in too far. I can’t let anyone in too far.
      It’s wrong to run but it’s what I have to do right now.
      Maybe we will cross paths again.
      You will always be so very dear to me and I will always look back at our time together with a heavy heart- all the smiles, the tears, the pain, the happiness, the adventures. I will look at it all and i will at it often.
      But I am a bird and I have to fly. I have to spread my wings and let them carry me as far as they can, as far as I can go before I have to stop.
      It’s my journey.
      Your journey will continue and I hope that you find this love and closeness that we have with someone new, as sad as that makes me.
      Someone who doesn’t need to run or fly, or even crawl away from the people that care. That will accept you like I did (do- always will) but won’t build you up only to vanish.
      I want to be sorry that I can’t stay but I’m not.
      My want to fly is so strong that I can’t be sorry for flying.
      I’m sorry that I’m not sorry, as corny and fraudulent as that sounds, I really am.
      I am so sorry for that.

      The last couple of years have melted together into nothing.
      I lost a bunch of stuff I never had in the first place.
      For 15 months there was so many opportunities to be together.
      Yet, there was no love making, no touching, no bonding, no memories.
      I have no idea where I go from here.
      Or if anyone wants to go with me.
      But I know I cannot do ‘nothing’ any more.

      When you are with me.
      Your mind is on someone else.
      And when your with someone else.
      Your mind is on me.
      You would not tolerate that behavior from anyone
      Yet, you expect it from everyone you know
      That is not a good thing.

      It is time to something besides care for people that do not care for me.

      Always never

      I always try to come up with a nickname for you but I can’t find one. We have no funny moments together. Bonding moments that would give me a nickname. Bummer
