So long sweet goddess

We go way back almost a decade. And now that she’s leaving, I feel like I have fallen into the trap of attachment. She was not my girlfriend, never was and never will be. I don’t mean to be too attached. But the connection we had felt like something truly special. It was this deep sacred feeling that cannot be replicated or reproduced. It can’t be explained. Although I respect her decision to leave the beautiful Pacific Northwest, I know I’ll miss her forever. I never got to ask why she’s taking off, but I know it had certainly nothing to do with me. It’s this lousy housing crunch. The atrocities of housing here is driving everybody out. It sure won’t be the same without her. I wonder if I’m blowing this out of proportion? Wish I could stop crying, but I cant.

I get you

It's not easy trying to navigate through a difficult situation where you have no choice but to let go of a long time friendship or relationship in any capacity. If you still have time, perhaps maybe meet up with her for a coffee or brunch to show much you care about her. Just say what you need to say and be thankful. Wish her well with lots of gratitude since she's enjoyed having you in her life as well. She does have feelings too, so you can bet that this must be hard for her as it is for you. Try to cherish the fond memories, as memories never die. It may take time since there's no right way to deal with the healing process, but it will get better. You'll be fine. The sun will shine again.

Losses are hard

I understand. I’ve had to say so long to a dear friend recently too, and I miss her so much. I’m not sure if I’ll ever see her again because travel is not really in the cards for me due to my health. But I know we’ll always be friends even if I don’t get to see her anymore. But yeah, it was really hard saying goodbye.
