Everything Happens For A Reason

THIS I BELIEVE

I BELIEVE IN EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON. I USED TO BE FRIENDS WITH THIS GIRL. WE WERE PRETTY MUCH ATTACHED AT THE HIP. WE HAVE BEEN FRIENDS SINCE 7TH GRADE AND WERE PRETTY MUCH PLANNING ON THE FUTURE, LIKE LIVING TOGETHER WITH OUR OTHER FRIENDS, AND WE ALSO HAD PLANNED TO GO TO THE SAME COLLEGE SO WE WOULD NEVER LOSE CONTACT. SO WE PRETTY MUCH THOUGHT WE WOULD BE FRIENDS FOREVER. I GUESS THAT DIDN’T TURN OUT HOW WE PLANNED IT TO.

OUR FRIENDSHIP AT THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR WAS PRETTY MUCH GREAT. WERE HANGING OUT EVERY WEEKEND AND ALMOST EVERY DAY. I THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO STAY LIKE THIS FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR. TOWARDS THE BEGINNING OF THE SCHOOL YEAR THIS GUY THAT SHE HAD LIKED FOR A LONG TIME STARTED LIKING ME. THAT’S WHEN ALL THAT DRAMA STARTED. WE WERE STILL HANGING OUT THE SAME AMOUNT OF TIME AS WE WERE BEFORE. BUT OUR FRIENDSHIP HAD TAKEN A GOOD BLOW TO IT. SHE ACTED LIKE NOTHING WAS WRONG BUT YOU COULD TELL THAT SOMETHING WAS BOTHERING HER.

SO ME AND THIS GUY STARTED TALKING ALL THE TIME AND HANGING OUT ALL THE TIME. SHE THOUGHT SHE WAS BEING REPLACED WITH HIM. I KEPT TRYING TO TELL HER THAT I WAS NEVER GOING TO DITCH HER FOR HIM. UNTIL WE WENT TO A FOOTBALL GAME ONE NIGHT AND HE MADE HER REALLY MAD AND SHE TOOK OFF AND I WAS GOING TO CHASE HER DOWN BUT I GOT TALKING TO THE GUY AND FORGOT ALL ABOUT HER. THE ONLY BAD THING ABOUT THAT WAS THAT SHE WAS MY RIDE HOME FROM THERE. SHE KEPT CALLING ME A BAD FRIEND AND TELLING ME THAT I BROKE MY PROMISE TO HER. I DID BREAK MY PROMISE, AND I FELT HORRIBLE ABOUT IT. THAT NIGHT SHE CALLED ME AND TOLD ME THAT SHE WASN’T MAD AT ME, SHE WAS JUST FRUSTRATED AT THE TIME, AND SHE SHOULDN’T HAVE TAKEN IT OUT ON ME. A COUPLE WEEKS LATER WE WERE BACK TO NORMAL ONCE AGAIN.

BUT THEN JUST WHEN I THOUGHT EVERYTHING WAS BACK TO NORMAL. WE GOT IN THIS FIGHT ABOUT SOMETHING STUPID. I WASN’T HAVING A VERY GOOD DAY, THE DAY WE GOT IN THIS FOUGHT SO, I SAID A LOT OF THINGS THAT I SHOULDN’T HAVE SAID AND SO DID SHE. WE JUST TOOK EVERYTHING WE SAID IN THE WRONG WAY. SHE ASKED FOR ALL HER STUFF BACK THAT SHE HAD LEFT AT MY HOUSE. SO I BROUGHT IT TO SCHOOL THE NEXT MORNING. IT WAS REALLY WEIRD, FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 4 YEARS I DIDN’T TALK TO MY “SO CALLED” BEST FRIEND. I JUST THINK THAT THIS FIGHT WAS PROBABLY THE BEST THING THAT WE NEEDED. THE ONLY THING BAD ABOUT THE WHOLE THING IS WE HAD NEVER FOUGHT BEFORE THIS, AND LOOK ONE LITTLE FIGHT AND OUR WHOLE FRIENDSHIP WENT DOWN THE DRAIN. SO THIS IS HOW I SEE IT MY LIFE HAS FINE WITHOUT HER AND IT WAS FINE WITH HER IN IT, SO I GUESS EITHER WAY THIS JUST HAPPENED FOR A REASON AND I GUESS THIS IS HOW IT SHOULD BE.
