Day 9 – Someone You Didn’t Want To Let Go, But Just Drifted
Story of my life, right here. I’ve had a lot of people, friends especially, drift in and out of my life. I’ve been married before DH, not something I mention too often online, and in my first wedding I chose not to have attendants for that reason. I didn’t want to have people photographed in my wedding party that I wouldn’t have in my life years later. I remember asking my mom (or dad, I’m not sure) about one of their attendants and they couldn’t even remember their name. I didn’t want that to happen.
I have countless BFFs with whom I’ve drifted apart. For some, it was a natural split, and with others we reached a breaking point.
Rather than list them by name, I’ll list off initials:
K, B, M, J, R, S, B, F, K, K, M, M, V
As you can see, this isn’t my first rodeo. I’ve learned/tried not to take it to heart too much, and like I mentioned in my Day 8 post, I try to focus on those who have stood by me and who deserve my attention. I’m sure most of us have heard that “friends come into our life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.” I try to make peace with my splits, and know that these friends came into my life when I needed them (or when they needed me), and left when their time was up. I hope they’ve found happiness, wherever their lives have taken them!
I’m a 31 year old Navy sister, Army wife - Air Force wife to a prior service Marine/Soldier, and an Air Force Reservist. I am a happy wife and mother. My husband switched branches and joined me in the Air Force Reserve. We look forward to a future of dual military service!
