An Open Letter to the Friends I Used to Know


Dear friend,

I am writing today because I thought of you. We had some great times together and made some pretty cool memories, but I honestly have no idea what’s going on in your life now. The truth is, I didn’t mean for us to stop talking. It just kind of happened. And although it seems like neither of us tried to stop the space between us from growing, I believe there is still something there.

Us drifting apart was not a sign that we are no longer friends. It was a sign that we needed to focus on ourselves for a little while. We need to learn and grow and make experiences without interference. This is not to say our friendship was interfering, but it takes a lot of commitment to talk to friends each day and to stay on top of their life while also fully embracing your own. At the end of the day, we all want what’s best for each other and sometimes what’s best is to spend a little less time together.

Sometimes random things remind me of you and other days I have a flashback to one of our wonderful memories together. I’ll occasionally send you a text to see how things are going because I do genuinely miss seeing you. Just because we don’t talk all that often doesn’t mean we aren’t still friends. I know that as soon as I see you again it will be just like old times. We’re the type of people that just pick up where we left off. It’s not about the frequency at which we see each other, but the quality of our time together. That’s why I still consider us friends and I hope that you do too.

With Love Always,

    1. Thanks, Kristine! I’ve been thinking a lot about my long lost friends lately. Last night the thought of this post just popped into my head and I knew I had to write it before I lost that passion. Thanks for reading and I hope all is well πŸ™‚
