Realizing how much you mean to the people you care for can be heart wrenching. Truth is often without a sense of mercy, neither is it with a sense of compassion or comfort. Few people if ever are your friends because they can be. For the most part people are your friends only out of the sincerity of the moment.
When the moments are gone, so is the friendship.
It’s a hard lesson learnt, one I am not unfamiliar with. I just allow myself to believe that some things are different, that some things can change. It doesn’t hurt any less to come back to the hard truths of life, but at least I don’t have to feel too surprised by it happening again. Knowing that your faith can be betrayed doesn’t mean it can be destroyed. It just means that you have to work harder to keep the faith.
It’s going to be a very busy 6 months for me.
