How many times I refused to answer a question about you, or reveal something I knew. I always kept it to myself, or blatantly responded that I was not going to say more. Do you want to know why? You’re friendship always mattered to me, and I never crossed a line where you couldn’t trust me. It was a tight rope walk at times, but I did my best to maintain the balance and when I held my ground it was never pushed because she knew not to. I always knew she didn’t want to mess with that either. So it bothers me that you didn’t trust me. It just feels really shitty now because you seem out of my life completely. I had no choice though, because I earned more than that. I, honest to God, tried to have a presence in your life, but I always felt shut out, because at the end of the day, that’s exactly what was happening – I was. However, I do wish you the best and hope you really are happy with where you are. But a few words of advice that I can never tell you because you will never really listen – don’t settle; don’t ever settle. You know you are. Talk to me when you’re ready. You can always trust me.
