Losing friends can be sacred.

I’ve experienced the loss of friends many times. I have recently too. Sometimes it really does hurt because I’ve loved them so much. Sometimes it hurts initially but then I realize that it was probably best and that our friendship was based on an illusion rather than a reality.

These have become to me sacred sacrifices. When you sacrifice something it is a loss. It really is a sacrifice. But now I’m starting to realize it as sacred. Something profound. It’s learning how to surrender without resentment.

What is important to me is that I be true to who I am. Love myself. I must be my own best friend. All other genuine friendships radiate from there.

Do you want some friends that could be on the same page as you? Consider joining The Lasting Supper!

    I’m sorry you’ve lost friends because you speak out your beliefs and speak for others who can’t. That is so painful. I want you to know that your posts have helped keep me strong. Your fight has helped me.

    I am with you.

  5. Thanks Wendy! I’m actually good. 🙂
