Finding success after failure in friendship – CLICK TO COMMENT

By Sarah Louziah  A few months ago, I lost my best friend that I’ve known since I was born. She was my cousin, too. We were so close and a couple of months ago things started to change. I couldn’t imagine losing her. I was so scared of letting her go. I know everything about her and she knew everything about me. Now, you might wonder, what’s the problem? Why were you scared of losing her? And the answer is a new girl came along and I felt like she was stealing her from me. I was so scared and nervous. A few days after my best friend and her new friend became very close, my best friend stopped talking to me; she stopped texting me. I was so lost and didn’t know what to do. I was scared of change. I couldn’t imagine my life without her. She started to use me and only asked me for favors. I made a decision that I am very proud of now. I found other true friends. And they are now my best friends. My cousin doesn’t really talk to me anymore, but I’m fine with that because I changed my whole lifestyle and now I’m much better without a ‘friend’ that uses me. I learned that change isn’t always a bad thing and I encourage everyone to try it once in a while.
