  • I really screwed up my friendships this summer. I've ruined two friendships. One for now; one possibly for ever.

    This picture is old, of course. Back when none of us even had a clue that we would be a close trio of friends. We didn't know each other that well.

    But then all of that changed and we all became what we were. We knew so much about each other and we were so comfortable around each other. It all fell apart because of stupid choices that we all made. Something that was so perfect was suddenly destroyed.

    Now I feel so alone without everything being like it was. I've got no one else who's the same as them. It could never be the perfect trio it once was. But even if it didn't turn into that, I wish I still had my friends. I wish I didn't have to watch them live their lives while I sat around, alone. I'm looking into their lives. I wish I got to be a part of them.
