Losing Friends

Hi! My name is Harshita and this is my first time writing a blog for WSS. For a little bit of background on me, I am a biochemistry major who aspires to be a veterinarian. As a stem major, I think we can all agree that balancing our social lives with our academics can sometimes feel like a chore, which is why I decided to write about something I am going through with a friend right now. Losing someone that you considered a friend has to be one of the worst things ever. Most of the time it is because of a conflict of some sort, but the worst kind of friendship breakups, or any breakups in general, are if it's the right person but wrong timing. One of my best friends from high school and I stopped talking after high school and just got in touch again a couple months ago, and it was such a breath of fresh air. Seeing how much we both grew in our time apart, and how our paths simultaneously aligned despite our different experiences was so interesting. I knew getting attached to someone that I had to work extremely hard to detach myself from was dangerous but inevitable. Being able to text them little updates throughout my day and have them to fall back on when I was going through something was amazing. During one of our facetime calls, they were telling me about their future plans to work on themselves and better themselves, and I was so proud to finally hear it. Working on themselves, in this instance, means no more communication with me. As proud as I am of them that they are working on themselves, I can’t help but be selfish and wish that I could still talk to them because now I have to detach myself from them again. I don’t know when or if I will ever cross paths with them again, but I think it is beautiful that they will always carry a part of me with them and vice versa.
