Friendship doesn’t always mean fun. There will be rough times too that will put the relationship to test.
Birds of the same feather flock together. But having the same feather doesn’t mean these birds are identical. They are different from each other, one way or another.
People have differences. No matter how similar two people could seem, they would always have opposing views on one issue or another.
They said opposite attracts. Yes it does. Sometimes. But there are opposite sides that are never meant to cross paths. Paths that can lead us, far and far away from people we use to be so close with. We keep on walking and walking. Following the same path, our own views. We only realize that we are far enough, when we have been walking alone for so long, when we can’t see even our friend’s shadow anymore.
Sometimes, trying to save a friendship is like walking on thin ice. We walk quietly, gently, not to crack the ice. We try not to say things that will hurt one, no matter how true they are. We try not to open up issues that will break the silence. We try to keep things the way they seemed to be, even though we know that they aren’t anymore. We try hard until we can’t even try anymore. We try until the ice breaks. We try until we fall into the abyss of freezing water where our hearts die of cold loneliness that even old flames cannot be rekindled.
If this is the case, should we just stop and declare it’s over?
