What is the right way to end a long friendship? Is there a right way?
Moving on from friendships is a hard thing to do. At this time in my life, I've had to re-evaluate some things. As I look back I've sometimes put the wrong relationships first in my life. I'm embarrassed to say on more than one occasion I put my family obligations on the back burner while I've catered to other friendships. And when posed with the same situation...my friends put their other relationships first and me last. Is that because I've allowed them to do this all along? Is it because I've been so loyal to them they beleived I'd just sit back and not care? Or was my friendship just a placeholder until something better came along?
Maybe I've become less accepting of things? Maybe I'm just getting old? Or maybe I just want someone to listen to me when I have something of importance to talk about; even if id has nothing to do with you, your relationships but just about me. As Toby Keith says in his song, "talking about you makes me smile but every once in a while I wannna talk about me."
