To the friends I don’t talk to anymore:
I’m sorry. That was never my intention when I began new chapter of my life. I might not go out and party like I used to, but that doesn’t mean that I think I’m better than you. My priorities have changed … they tend to do that after a person has all but death staring in their face. I’ve finally figured out what things are important in my life. It’s not going out and getting drunk every weekend. It’s the people in my life that were there for me when my whole world was crashing down around me. It’s my religion … the one that I had come so close to losing because of the choices I made in my past. It’s succeeding at my job and pushing myself harder to make myself a better person.
I do miss you and our friendship, but I know that I have to keep going on with my life. In all honesty, I never thought anything would ever come between us. I thought we would be “friends forever” just like you read in storybooks and see in the movies, but that’s not the reality. People change. Friends, who once were there for every little moment of your life, are no longer there.
I will always value the friendship that we had. It has made me who I am today. The memories we shared will never be forgotten no matter how much time has passed. I hope your life is everything you ever wanted. You deserve to be happy. I wish you the best in everything you do, and I hope you may someday understand why I changed.
