Dear ‘Best Friend’,
You were my soulmate. You were the one who tried to make me see the good in myself even at times when I couldn’t. You were the one who was always there when I was sad and needed someone to talk to. You were my everything and I believed you felt in the same way about me.
Unfortunately, that wasn’t true. When I look back over my life, I realize that you never appreciated what we had. There was a strong connection between us (or at least I thought there was). We could hear each other’s unsaid thoughts. I could only look into your eyes and tell whether you were happy or sad. But, apparently, that didn’t matter to you as much as it mattered to me. You didn’t appreciate it. You didn’t care to lose all that.
We went through a lot together but that wasn’t enough for you to keep me in your life. It pains a lot when I think about how easy it was for you to cut me out like I never existed.
You broke my heart.
Still, it’s difficult not to think about the past. It’s hard not to think about you. Growing apart from you is one of the most painful experiences I’ve ever gone through. I never believed that such a thing could happen to us. I never knew that it was so easy to cut someone out of your life.
At first, I found it very difficult to forgive you. The pain felt fresh even a year after you so easily cut me out of your life. The way you distanced yourself from me scarred me deeply. I spent a lot of time wondering what went wrong. What I did wrong to deserve your cruel treatment.
But, no. Don’t think I never thought that maybe it was my fault. I racked my brain day and night trying to remember how I treated you and whether I did something that could hurt your feelings. But, guess what? I know I never did to you what you did to me. And you know that too.
You can blame forever if you want, but you know the answer deep down in your soul. You know whose fault it is because someone you mean the world to can neither be able nor have the heart to cut you out of their life without showing any consideration or remorse. Sounds familiar, right?
You know what’s funny? It’s normal for close friends to have disagreements and even argue because at the end of the day we don’t share the same opinions and interests. And this is a common reason why many friends grow apart. But, the reason you cut me out was not that we didn’t like the same things in life, but because you let yourself be manipulated by your “soulmate” – your boyfriend. Well, if he was your true soulmate, he would have never controlled your life and limited your freedom the way he did. He would have respected your choice to have a best friend.
