To My Old Best Friend, I Can’t Believe I’m Going To Say “I Do” Without You

Since the day we first met as children, we did everything together. It’s like we were literally attached at the hip. We laughed together, we grew together, we dreamed together. And we learned what life was all about together. We told each other all the time about our dreams and future goals. And we were there for one another through some of our lowest points.

But then years later, we’re now practically strangers. Who knew this incredibly strong bond we formed over the years would just end? I never thought I’d be going through this rollercoaster ride of life without you by my side. Especially, some of the biggest moments without you there to confide in.

It’s hard to finally realize you won’t be coming with me to go wedding dress shopping. Where you would help me pick out the “perfect” dress after trying on about 100 hundred that were just missing something. I thought you’d be going through every painstakingly small detail of my wedding with me.

My future hubby is my everything and I so wish I could share how amazing he is with you.

You were my best friend for such a long time, it’s hard to accept that we have grown so far apart.

I would do anything for you and our friendship, but sometimes people don’t want to do the same and that is okay. It is okay that you have your life and you want to live it without me because I want you to be happy, even if that means without our friendship.

We’ve had so many great times together and that’s what I will cherish forever. You were a good friend and I’ve missed being able to have you to count on. It’s sad that I have to lose a friend like you, but I understand that people change and sometimes that change means certain people won’t be in your life anymore.

One of the worst things about losing you though was knowing my best friend doesn’t care about me the way I care about her. It was hard for me to see you distance yourself and then only talk to me or hang out with me when it benefited you. It was very hard for me to accept that I needed to let you go, but I have.

I want you to know I will always love you and care about you, but I need to let you go so I can stop getting hurt and let you live the life you want to live. I will miss you and maybe one day we will find our path back to each other.

I wish you the best in everything you plan to do in your life, and I am sorry I won’t have the opportunity to share one of the happiest days of my life with you.
