Thank you for the words of support and encouragement in my last post. It’s already been a couple of months since I’ve been in contact with that friend. So, it's pretty clear that we’ve both silently moved on from each other.
I think the hardest part of “letting go” of my friend was also letting go of “being bitter.” Since all that really did, when it comes down to it, was make me feel miserable, angry and grumpy.
Since school’s started up again, I’ve been really busy with my students, lesson planning, and helping out with various school events. Which has actually been a good thing. Being caught up in work again helped me to think less and less of her.
A stray thought of her pops up here and there, of course. But thankfully not the bitterness that used to come with it.
So I’m actually in a pretty good place right now, compared to where I was a couple months ago. I'm going to keep moving forward.
