Missing A Good Friend

Rosemary is author of six books on mental health and inspirational poetry. She is a motivational speaker and a volunteer peer advocate.

I really don't understand why you are so fragile

That if I get upset and tell you what's on my mind

You shut down and block me out of your life

I really don't understand why you can't forgive or make amends

Do you really care at all?

Was I just a convenience and are all your relationships that way?

Do you just use people for companionship or money?

As far as I've known, true friendships are not about expecting perfection

But forgiving over and over as we are all just only human

I'm glad I have many other friends

And that they don't punish me when we disagree

It's really sad that you are wounded in that way

That you wouldn't let me stay

Some people have personalities that won't allow any type of confrontation

I am not perfect

I can't live like that

Never getting upset or voicing how I feel when I feel neglected or overlooked

It's a shame that some people will literally block you out of their life for months at a time and then beg you to come back

They seem to decide when they want to see you and then when you want to see them they are not always there and don't care that you miss them, or needed them.

Perhaps this is not a healthy relationship. Perhaps it's time to move on and be with dependable people.

Then why did I enjoy being with this person so much and why did they make me feel so good and so happy?
