My friend was married yesterday. To her high school sweetheart. It really makes me wonder where time went. I can remember me and her being best friends in junior high; late night phone calls, weekend slumber parties, and school dances. Then I moved, and we drifted, but stayed in contact. She is such an amazing person, loving, loyal, and goodhearted. I believe they are in love, and I believe he can provide a great life for her! But it left a bittersweet taste in my mouth.
Where did the time go, that I was so busy having my own life, that I forgot about keeping my friends? I’m with someone who does not love me, and sees no future together. I have loved him for the four years we have been together. I knew going into this, that he may never come around, but I kept pursuing it anyway.
I want to have a man I love, who loves me. A man that wants to create a family together, and share the life ahead of us. I want to create memories that will last a lifetime, and to be with the one I’m meant to be with. I want to surround myself with his friends, and my friends, and our families! I want to have kids, whom we can raise, and love together. Where did I go wrong? Why is it that my heart will not let go, even though I know I can be much happier if I allow him to fly free. He is not happy, and that in turn makes me unhappy. I want nothing more than for him to live his life the way he always dreamed. Even if that means being with someone else.
Maybe one day I’ll understand.
