Saying Goodbye To An Old Friend

Break ups suck especially when you don’t see them coming and it’s with one of your best friends. That’s what happened to me.

If you asked me a year ago who would be my bridesmaids, she would have been one of them!

I met Annie 13 years ago in Montreal. She moved there from Niagara Falls and we worked at the same bar. We became instant friends and inseparable. We literally spent every moment together for an entire year. When I moved to Ottawa for school, she would visit all the time. At one point she even lived with my mom .

When she was moving to Orlando for school, I was devastated. But we remained close. I helped her move down there and we talked all the time and saw each other at least 3 times a year.

Obviously, the older we get, the busier life gets but we always managed to stay in touch. About a year and a half ago, she got into a fight with her boyfriend. She was really sad. She would call me 3 times a day devastated. Then, the phone calls kind stopped. I would call and she would never answer. When I text she either wouldn’t respond, send a one worded text or her text wouldn’t make any sense like someone else was responding for her. My mom wrote to her and she never responded. I started to get worried

She’s not on any social media so it’s not like I could stalk her to see if she was ok. She lives in Florida so I can’t just go knock on her door. I became a stalker and found her sister in law on facebook and wrote to her. She told me she’s ok, she’s not very good at keeping in touch with anyone but she’s good and just got married.

My heart broke. She got married. She got married and didn’t even bother to tell me. This happened yesterday and I’ve been walking around absolutely shook. We sent a quick text to each other last week and I asked her, how’s everything and she responded, “everything’s good.” You couldn’t add oh I got married.

I guess that’s it. If you can’t even be bothered to send a quick btw I got married, I’m guessing you don’t want me to be a part of your life. After everything we’ve been through together.

Annie, if you somehow manage to find this and read it, Congrats girl! I wish you all the happiness in the world cause you deserve nothing less. You’ll always be in my heart and prayers. I love you and I’ll always be here for you if you need anything
