Sometimes there are things that happen that affect you deeply, and are completely out of your control.
When a friend gets a new job and they slip away from you, it feels like all you can do is grasp at the emptiness where they were in an attempt to catch them or bring them back. It;s even harder when you were encouraging them during the interview process and rooting for them to get the job.
But at the same time you realize that their life is theirs, and nothing you can do will force them to come back into your life. All you can do let them know that you will always be their friend, and hope that once everything settles down some of the good times you had will come again.
This may seem like a strange thing to write about, but it's just another small way that I'm trying to let this friend know that I continue to support them and look forward to any opportunity to see them again.
