And, who would be the bigger person then? I have friends I have been close to/best friends with for over a decade, and a couple for over two decades. We miss each other’s birthdays, but is there a lack or loss of love? No, ma’am. Our bonds, connectedness, love, or friendship doesn’t revolve around the little things or mistakes. Give it time… It’ll sink in. And, thank you so much for submitting. I can see how this could break someone’s heart. Hang in there. Love your friends. I guarantee you, they haven’t stopped loving you.
