Like Freaks of a Feather, We Rock Together
So leaving them is just tough.
Unfortunately, it's gotten harder.
A few reactions to me moving away have been hard for me to handle. I understand where everyone is coming from, really I do. But it doesn't make it simple in the slightest.
Some are now starting to pull away from me. It makes me want to scream "I haven't moved yet!". Because I'm not in the same vicinity, does that automatically erase our friendship? If that's the case, then it tells me we weren't really that close to begin with. My best friend lives in London; she's still my best chick.
Take note, people.
There are also a few people that seem to resent the fact that I'm leaving, as though it has a great deal to do with them.
Well, my apologies. It doesn't. I'm moving on, and moving away from The St. Catharines Rut. It has nothing to do with anyone but myself (well.. maybe a bit to do with Craig, too).
So to anyone who is taking offense to the fact that I'm jumpin' ship - don't. It's ok to miss me, but support would be appreciated too. Be glad for me like I'd be happy for you in return.
And that brings me to another bunch of friends I have.
The people who get it. They understand what I'm doing, and WHY I have to do it. They've told me how sad they are to see me go, but they are behind me completely. Those people, I thank.
I suggest everyone adopts this way of looking at the situation, and soon. The clock is ticking; there isn't much time left.
And then what?
Remember who your friends are.
