I guess I thought we would last a long time. I guess not though.
In my life, I’ve gotten to know people, and then it seems like they all disappear. We don’t talk, we don’t even acknowledge each other when we cross paths.
We go from being friends to being strangers.
And I just don’t understand. Why?
Is there something wrong with me? Do I do something that causes people to hate me or stop caring?
It doesn’t make sense, because I always feel like I put a lot of effort into caring about people and showing them that I love them. Usually, it feels like I do the most for the friendship. So am I actually doing something wrong? I don’t think so.
So is it those people’s fault? Maybe I just choose incorrect people with whom to associate myself. But it can’t be everyone.
I wish I knew. I wish people could clearly communicate what the problem is, instead of just deleting me from their past, present, and future.
I need to figure it out, or I’ll end up completely alone.
William Shakespeare, Sonnet 116
I know it’s a bit overrated, but I’ve always loved this sonnet. Certainly something to remember. Love is true love when it is constant and does not give up, despite whatever hardships interfere.
