Looks fun :))
Actresses get stupid questions asked of them all the time, like, ‘How do you stay sexy?’ or ‘What’s your sexiest quality?’ All these ridiculous things you would never ask a man.
By loss I don’t mean the demise or expiration of a person but rather the rift between two or more individuals.
Hi friend, we haven’t spoken in months. Last time we spoke, you apologized in advance because you planned on distancing yourself from me. I said it was okay and that I understood perfectly - Logically speaking, I did. You were talking about love, And love wanted you to distance yourself from me (Actually, not just me but a bunch of other people). What I don’t understand is that you managed to decide so easily. I guess my being there for you wasn’t good enough. I guess my being straight forward about “love” contributed to your decision. And I am sorry. I wish I lied but it’s just not in my nature to pretend and watch my friend be bossed around by “love”. It disappointed me that you just walked away after saying hi when I saw you in the parking lot. I wanted to talk to you but, I guess it didn’t matter to you. It hurt a lot but, what can I do?
These past few months made me realize a couple of things. Yes, I understood but I also realized what friendship is. Friendship is not something you could dictate. Friendship is timeless. And I guess our friendship isn’t timeless. I hope you’re happy with your decision. I hope that “love” is treating you right. I know that someday we’ll talk and laugh about this. I just hope that when that time comes, you would also understand why I can’t be that same best friend you once had. I can’t be that person because you made it clear to me that for you, friendship is circumstantial. If it is not beneficial to you, then it is worthless.
