(Thinking about mine’s and others’ past experiences on this matter)
Friendship is what makes you a better person. It what makes you realize your faults, your qualities and your reasoning. We have those special people in our lives to help advance in our journey. We let them in our lives for an alternative perspective for which we fail to see. However, we are all still human beings which we react on emotions. These emotions can cause irreversible damage to those who you once consider a friend.
At one point in our lives, we’ll lose contact with someone we consider a close/good/best friend. And then something happens and that once close friendship fades away. Then you lay back one day and ask yourself “what happened?” As time goes by, our memory fades into obscurity. Most people will not remember that argument,lie, no communication after parting ways or even a personal belief that you didn’t agree with. What if that former friend was gone? Your former friend nor yourself will have that opportunity to make amends for the past. If anything I have learn in this life so far: never say goodbye out of anger and never make regrets. It hurts when the opportunity of making amends doesn’t happen. Life may be crazy, fun unexpected or unfair. But life is what you make of it. And I know that when that time comes for me to say goodbye again, the hurt might not be as bad. At least, I will have that peace when I go.
