    In an effort to be a supportive friend during what I can only imagine was one of the roughest times of your life, I had to think up encouraging things to say to you. You know, to lift your spirits! How you are smart and beautiful and kind… How you deserve so much better. That’s what did it. That’s what made me start to fall for you a little and we both knew it was wrong. But it was an accident.

    I just miss your friendly presence in my life so much and there’s no getting it back. For the best…

      This speaks to me, but in a different way. For me, I was already falling when he began to lift my spirits. His kindness solidified what I had been feeling and I began to trust in him allowing my vulnerability to emerge. Then I realized it was more than just passing feelings. I don’t think, well I hope he didn’t intend to make me fall deeper. But I did. It was a mistake, and I can’t hold him responsible for his kindness. I am just not used to it. But he doesn’t reciprocate. I am not enough for him.

        Well, she told me in no uncertain terms that she did not reciprocate when I was honest with her about the fact that things were going too far (for me). And there really wasn’t enough there to be reciprocated, really. All I knew was that I was thinking about her a lot, which was wrong. But if I were just looking for an ego boost, I would say that I was not enough for whom she would even begin developing feelings. So I feel you there.
