Cutting the Cord

by - May 17, 2011

Maybe I'm crazy, but I just can't sever a friendship. Not cleanly anyway, especially when that friendship lasted 10 years.

How could we let a significant other come between our friendship?

True friends are hard to find and even harder to keep.

Truer words could never describe this situation.

You were a true friend, one of the best I've ever had, but as hard as I tried to keep our friendship intact, I lost you anyway.

So I'll continue to check in on you from time to time, but I'll never get my hopes up that you'll do the same for me. After all, if our friendship truly meant as much to you as you said it did, you never would have let it end this way.

  1. I'm sorry that someone unfriended you, Ashton. Now that you have written the eulogy for that friendship my advice is to let it go and move on. I have discovered that friends are easy to find as long as you're coming from "what can I do for you" rather than "what can you do for me." The most precious friendships in my life are the ones that came out of left field and defy all logic. I am blessed with several of those relationships at the moment. They might all be gone tomorrow but if they are I'll be okay because I have total confidence in my ability to find more. That's the power of creating a model of the universe which is one of abundance rather than scarcity.

  2. I have lots of other friends, that's for sure. It just sucks to realize once and for all that you've lost someone who was such a special part of your life... especially in the way this happened. It makes you question a lot of things.

  3. I can so relate to this. Have I told you about my former best friend? She did the same to me. She chose someone whom she just met on Friendster (which was like 3-years-ago's Facebook). Yes, it hurt me. I got angry. It still makes me angry now and it's been three years. I have decided to end our friendship when she turned the blame on me.

    It's a long story and is very complicated.

    I love how you still value your friendship with him. And I'm glad you have decided to cut the cords. You deserve better. :)
