To my ex-best friend, I know you will never read this because you have unfriended or blocked me on everything except LinkedIn since we stopped being friends but today I thought of you. It struck me that there was a time 3 years ago when I thought about you every single day. There was a time when I wore that friendship bracelet since the day you made it for me and until the day I told you I can't be your friend anymore. There was a time you were angry at me for leaving so easily when it was one of the hardest things I have ever done. Perhaps you are still angry at me for that and I don't blame you. I wish that I could see earlier that our friendship and extreme co-dependency wasn't healthy. I wish I acknowledged my trauma before it catalysed the end of our relationship. But the past is written and it is beyond us. I still have the friendship bracelet you gave me in the same handbag that I had on that day. It's like a time capsule of what once was because no matter how ugly the end was, I will be forever grateful for the friendship we shared. I hope the collective insecurities that drove us apart are no longer there in your mind just like they are no longer in mine. I hope you are well. I hope you are happy.
