A friend recently told me that she feels as though life will not be altered in anyway for her closest friends when she moves away. She will be moving away in about a month.
This is one of those times in life when you question what it is that you mean to people. You wonder if you will be remembered. You want your friends to be happy and move on, but at the same time you want to know that it is at least, in some way, difficult for them without you around.
Sure your friends may miss you for a few weeks, or a month. But eventually, they move one. They tend to find new friends, and begin doing different things, despite the fact that you are gone.
The worst part about hearing her talk to me, was knowing exactly how she felt. Each word she said sounded so familiar to me. Sounded just like all of the things I have said each time I have moved in the last year and a half.
People have a primal need to be needed. A need to be missed. At times like this a person could wonder why they bothered to make these friends in the first place? How can a friends life be unaffected by your departure? Sad; Yes!
I guess at the end of the day, all I can do is spent every spare moment with her. All of the little moments will someday add up. As I stated before, there are some friends who will sing with you, but there are a select few who will sing to you when you can’t seem to remember all of the words.
God Bless, Good night!
