Sometimes the right thing to do isn’t any fun
I don’t even know what to say. I know that I’m doing what’s right, but it may cause a friendship to end. I don’t want that to happen, but I will not let this person ask me to be a liar for them. I won’t endorse a big move and a relationship all built on a lie. I won’t act like everything is great, because it’s not.
God, I hope this all turns out well in the end. But as of right now, it kind of feels like the world will never be the same, and like my eyes will never stop burning.
I suppose I have enough experience with this kind of thing to know that I will “come out the other end.” I guess it’s just uncomfortable and I wanted to vent. I almost didn’t go to my other friend’s bachelorette party because of this. I’m glad I did. It helped me realize that I don’t know what will happen in times of trouble, but that I can enlist the support of my friends and family to help me along anytime.
I guess no one said life was supposed to make sense all the time. I think the human race is addicted to trying to make sense of everything. It’s a vicious cycle.
I thought that once I found the one I was going to spend the rest of my life with that my heart would never get broken again. Come to find out, heartbreak is not reserved for significant others.

Wisdom isn’t always comfortable. I’m praying for you. Oh, and I’m praying for sunshine this weekend. It’s been getting nice in NJ–is the weather improving in MI?
I’m sorry that you’re going through this ordeal.. It really isn’t fun to stick by your guns somtimes…But you gotta do what you think is best and if that friendship doesn’t survive, then you just gotta look back on the good times you had…. I hope you cheer up! 🙂
