It's always hard to let people go if you value them dearly. In the beginning, hot promises to visit each other help to dry the crocodile tears, but after a while, you realise more and more that those visits either don't happen at all, far less than you imagined or that your relationship is just not the same anymore.

No more spontaneous meetings in a cosy coffee shop and cheering each other up after a hard day, no more lazy Sunday afternoons with pizza and your favourite series. Life feels a little bit more lonely, and you have no idea if there will ever be a new friend that can fill the gap in your life.

This is what I go through at the moment. It seems that too many people I love are leaving in a too short time. While the look I show you is a happy outfit, the closed eyes of my dress perfectly express what I feel: I just want to close my eyes and pretend nobody ever leaves. Oh, what a sweet but stupid nostalgia! But who can blame me: I am a sensible girl, neither afraid or ashamed of shedding tears when I am emotionally touched.

I remember all the novels I read about friendship among girls when I was a teenager. All of them going through thick and thin together, discovering sweet innocent love and helping each other over the oh-so-broken heart. This is the kind of friendship I was longing for my whole life. But teenage times are long gone, and friendship didn't get easier, only time did get less.

Yes we are all online 24 hours a day, we can be part of each others lives no matter how far we are from each other, but let's be honest: It's still not the same. And believe me: On Facebook, you only see the happy moments and never what happens if the eyes of the cameras are closed. So why don't we get offline and call an old friend?

My Outfit:
Dress: The Whitepepper, Necklace: Happiness Boutique, Shoes: Melissa (old),
Tights and Socks: Topshop, Sunglasses: Vintage, Earrings: Vintage, Watch: Baby-G,
Ring: Tatty Devine (old)

  1. It is sad when friendships come to an end. Sometimes social media is the only way to stay connected - we all move around so much. I've relocated twice and lost touch with people which is a shame, but on the plus side I've also meet lots of lovely people too :-)

  7. I think your current situation is something we all have to go through at some point, and it really sucks. I hope you feel better soon and even though a gap like that is hard to fill, I'm sure you'll find new friendships that feels at least as rewarding. You look beautiful btw. <3
