Today, I’m Sad
Yesterday my best friend dropped some unexpected news on me and said she’s moving to Miami for an unbelievable job offer. I’m devastated. She was my person, and now she’s going to be on the opposite side of the country from me.
I know things could be much worse in terms of how the world is doing these days. So I feel bad complaining. I’ve just been feeling really lonely these days and am needing a space to vent. Thank you for letting me do that here.
I was so excited to start spending time with her again soon, but now I guess I’ll have to start feeling excited about this opportunity for her. Selfishly, I’m hurting and finding it difficult to do so, but I really am so proud of her. This is her once in a lifetime moment, and I am just so in awe of her. I know this won’t affect the love we have for each other. It’s just that things are going to be much different now.
So is it cool if I still say “what the heck, man?!!?” Ugh loneliness is a hell of a monster and a thief of joy. Have you been feeling lonely lately too?
I think loneliness is something we don’t talk about enough because it makes us sound weak, but hey. I’m lonely as heck right now. Know your loneliness is welcome here.
