The last week has been one of the largest emotional rollercoasters I’ve had in a long time. I was convinced I was about to lose my best friend because of our continual emotional problems that have caused us to have either conflict or just drifting apart because of the relationship focusing too much on our problems that took away from the friendship. I’m in the process right now of discovering how we can be friends properly again after the explosion that I contributed to, but I think part of it is that I lost my personality over the last several months with all the stress and emotional meltdowns. It’s been hard on all of us and we need to find the balance of leaning on each other while still caring for the friendship as well.
The best advice I can give anyone going through a hard time in a friendship right now is to be patient and remember what caused the two of you to become close friends in the first place. If you both care enough for it and have enough in common, it can still be refreshed no matter how long it’s been since it started. Me and this friend have known each other since I was 11 years old…and I’m not willing to throw that away.
