If there's one lesson you will definitely learn in your life at some point, it's that there are people out there who have mastered the role of the "fake friend." These so called friends are good at acting like they care about you and your life, they hang out here and there, and tell you about their problems. These friends seem like any normal friend.
Then, they show their true colors and take off the mask. They disappear from your life. You need them and they are no longer there for you. You try to hang out, but regardless of both of your busy schedules, they make up excuses. They slowly fade from your life without any explanation of why.
Throughout life, I have seen plenty of fake friends cross my path. Each friend, like the ones before, just continue to fade from life like they were never even there. Every time, I could not tell you why the friendship ended, or well just disappeared. Certainly not my wanting or doing.
Sadly, there is not much you can do about it. These friends are people you thought were cool, people you trusted, people you wanted to spend time with and have a good laugh. They were that, but decided to move on.
The person that I am, I try to save these friendships. I'm all about being friends and staying friends. If there is no reason to end it, why should you? Time and time again though, I end up being disappointed in a friendship that wasn't meant to be.
So if fixing it is no longer in my future, I do my best to let it go. They must have some reason they don't want to continue the friendship and I try to respect that. As much as it irritates me that I don't understand, I just respect that it's done.
Life is all about being the bigger person and moving on with your life. Dwelling on the past was never said to be a way to spend our time. So anytime I come across people like this, I simply move on from it. If there is a chance of rekindling in the future, I will take it. Otherwise, the past is the past.
