Dear Ex beat friend,
I have found myself thinking about you recently, after I updated my phone and had to restore my contacts from my cloud, your nickname popped up in there somehow. I guess I never deleted it during our falling out 5 years ago. I’ve had so much to tell you in the last 5 years but no will to say any of it to you. You taught me so many life lessons. Lessons about trust, lessons about life, lessons about laughter, and most importantly the lesson on how to lose someone so important to you. I still question to this day what happened to our friendship, it was like one day I turned around and you were gone and never looked back again. I had seen you do this to many people before but never thought I’d be one of them. I always thought you’d be there the day I graduated nursing school, I told you about it through our whole friendship, the day we met when we were 8 I already knew and you knew you would be a teacher. Here we are doing the things we desired but not sharing them with each other. I just hope you’re happy in you career. I hope you’re happy in all your life choices.
Dear ex best friend,
Do you ever wonder about me? Do you ever wonder what happened to us in my mind? Do you ever think about where we would be today if we wouldn’t have grown so silent and cold? I know your newest friends are filling your life with warmth. I know you’re family are filling your life with happiness. But a part of me has always wondered.
Oh one last thing, dear ex best friend,
Thank you. Thank you for making me you ex best friend and teaching me all these lessons in life I would have otherwise not learned. Thank you for putting me through the cold dark pain when you shut me out and for taking the trust I ever put into anyone. Thank you for teaching me trust is earned not given. And thank you for walking away when you did.
Your ex best friend.
