At some point in our lives, we will lose friends, there's no sugar coating that. It hurts, after everything, the memories, the photos, the adventures.. All down the drain. If I've learnt anything from my experience of losing friends, its that; I never really lose any, I just learn who the real ones are. I'm allowed to outgrow toxic relationships, "whether it was your choice to leave the friendship or not, you must respect the friendship you once had". People cross your paths for a reason, either they were a blessing or a lesson.
