From Our Readers: "My High School Friend Doesn't Talk to Me Anymore"
I am the type of person who doesn't make friends easily; I always struggle to talk to others and make friends with them. Then there's you, my exact opposite. You make friends easily. You are outgoing. You have a ton of friends and knew almost everyone in campus.
I cannot really remember how we ended up talking because I don't really talk that much. I cannot even remember how we became friends, but I am thankful that we became friends because you're person who brought out my crazy, goofy, weird side. We spent most of our time together and even skipped class together. Whenever we're together, we always lost track of time that's why there were moments when we went home at midnight and got grounded. Yet we didn't mind because we had fun. As time passed by, I thought you'd stay. I thought that everything was for keeps. I thought that you will be with me every step of the way.

But everything changed after we graduated. We both went seperate ways; we went to different schools. It became really hard to see each other and have our little talks because our schedules were packed. We managed to catch up with each other in between everything. If we were both free from homeworks, we went to the mall and went home late even if that got us into trouble.
But as time went by, we got really busy with college life. We rarely saw each other and we barely got to talk. I thought it was just a phase, but I did not expect that you can forget me and focus on your other friends instead. Yet I know I can't stop you from having other friends; that would be selfish of me.

If you're reading this, I want you to know that there were moments when my mom thought you were such a bad influence for me. That she wanted me to distance myself from you. But I didn't want to because you taught me how to be more outgoing, to let people inside my life, to look at the whole world out there and explore it. So I wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am grateful that I've met someone like you. I hope you are doing alright because I'm also doing good. I miss how we used to be with each other, but most importantly, I miss you.
