It would seem like I’m surrounded by unreliable people, but I think the truth is the friendship is purely one-sided.
The rule is at least 40-60, but i’m getting 0-100. It kills to see the people that were once a very important part of my life now die to nothing. I pass you on the sidewalk and you don’t even look at me. I know you heard me. We’ve had 3day sleepovers, spent summers with more days at your camp than my own. You were among my first, closest, friends. We didn’t even meet at school, which still to this day is a first for me. I’ve seen you cry, and you’ve seen me. That scar on your stomach, i was there when you got it, and now it’s outlasted our friendship. You see it every day, but forget me. We once had so much in common, but now you’re too cool to be bothered with such little people and stupid interests. Opportunities to reconnect are accepted or denied. Accepting is rare, and denied has become to norm. Accept, then being stood up, that’s getting pretty common too. Sure, people grow up and change. Appearance, personality, interests, and the people that surround them themselves with. I can’t force your thoughts, and in all fairness, it’s your life filled with your choices. I just feel it’s so pitiful how far apart we’ve grown, and that you can’t even put in the tiniest effort for what we once were. All of you, fuck you all. I won’t stand for this one-sided crap, lets try 0-0 and see if you notice the difference. You won’t, because i am already dead to you. I’m not going to let myself get hurt with your stupidity. I’ll look for others who are willing to put in the effort and can appreciate me for who i’ve become, because compared to many others, i’m not doing too badly. There are always improvements to be made, but i’m happy with the person i am, whether you want to be a part of it or not. I have the hardest time making friends, but making real ones is better than clinging to dead ones. I don’t want to leave you behind but if you don’t want to move forward with me, its your own loss. Enjoy your life, for i am no longer a part of it.
Sincerely, that guy you once knew.
