Slowly but surely reality has started to set in. You no longer went to beg and plead the Universe to change its mind. There is still an underlying feeling of anger that you got blindsided. Thankfully I got a warning 24 hours ahead of time. I think at this stage one becomes more resigned. Let’s be honest, you don’t want to beg and plead. You’re thinking about how to navigate a friendship in the future without it being weird. The person played a huge part in your life and you miss the laughs and inside jokes. You don’t want that to go away forever. This involves maturity and deciding when to actually have a conversation about it. Hard but sometimes necessary for closure.
