The song of October 4th, 2014

Hello there!

Today I had a very good day with my friends. But, as I was melancholic, I remember many things and people I’ve known. One of them reminds me of this song. It’s Bad Blood by Bastille (one of my favorite bands, by the way).

I posted before that I had a friend and we were very close. We thought it would last forever. But, “as the friendship goes, resentment grows”. We studied in different schools and didn’t see each other as often. And, distance helped us see that we were very different and had a lot of different perspectives about friendship.

I know that “variety is the spice of life”, but our ideas were opposite and we ended arguing many times. We wondered what had happened. We were hurting each other, the ones who promised to be together forever. We couldn’t fix our mistakes because none of us was willing to change/improve. As I knew I was hurting her and myself, I decided to end it there. I said that we would still be friends, but not best friends. We would still talk and laugh, but the bond was broken. We would not be able to come back to what we had before.

We both were very sad because of the decision, but we accepted the situation. It would be better to stop fighting to return to our previous friendship. We still talk, but it doesn’t feel the same. I still remember her with a smile, and I hope she does the same. And I will be there when she needs someone. It’s just that we’re not that close and I have accepted that fact. It hurt before and it probably still hurts, but it was for the best. I know we will find someone who we can really be ourselves with and it won’t hurt.

I hope you enjoy the song and remember, it’s International Sunday tomorrow!
