Losing it

by Abnormal.Thoughts

I am not an openly emotional person, I cry very rarely, but tears nearly broke the surface when I found out yesterday: I’m losing another friend, they’re moving away.
I get that we can still be friends but I’m a realist, every friend I’ve ever had is gone, lost touch, haven’t seen each other in years, and don’t even talk; friendships reduced to Facebook posts.
I know that’s where this is going and it breaks my heart. This is my only friend really, I’m not good at connecting with people and it took me 3 years to just find this one friend.
So now I’m going to be more alone than I already am.
This fucking world is trying to kill me.

I’m really sorry to hear that. Will you be able to find a way of private chat with your friend? Calls and, especially, video calls can be almost as if you were in one room.

Depending on where you are, it can be hard to find the right people in real life! I think searching online is preaferible in such cases. Where do people like your friend usually hang around? You’re likely to find similar people there.

Yes, we both have phones and we can talk, I’m just not good at that and neither is she. We’ll most likely stay in touch for a while but I am not holding out hope that we will remain as close as we are. Ive lost every friend that way, someone moves and we eventually lose touch.
We’re pretty boring people, lol, we spent months playing Catan (board game) almost every night. We met and random chance forced us together, there isn’t much around here to meet people and getting to be close to someone is not easy.

I’m a big believer in what Samuel Johnson said about friendship in the 18th century “a man must make new acquaintances as he goes through life or end up alone”. It’s as true today as it was back then. I’m as quiet as they come so making friends I don’t find easy, last year I started a part time course and made good friends and a romantic relationship as a result, it happened very easily actually, I don’t keep in contact with friends I had as a kid, nor them with me, for men it’s deeply unfashionable to keep in touch, perhaps women like to keep in touch more, I don’t know, anyway I if I could make new friends easily so could you!

That’s a very fitting saying. I can’t imagine it being unfashionable but I know as we go through life we all change and need different people and things in life and relationships so I hope I find some people to connect, I’m glad you did, it’s not impossible but it’s not an easy feat for everyone.
I’m happy for her too, this is what she wants and maybe she’ll be happier.
