Maybe because making friends isn’t easy.
Breaking up with a lover means losing half of your heart, which you can more or less put back together in time. But breaking up with a friend results in losing half of your soul, and that never completely heals. You feel lost, useless and you’ll be afraid… Afraid to find a new friend. And that is devastating.
Losing a friend is just painful. Especially if they were really true friends. Then be prepared for your entire world to crumble up.
I have had a history of friendship breakups all my life. And this one hurt the most. Maybe because now I am older and making friends at this point in my life does not come easy.
Sigh. I’ll be eating icecream alone tonight.
