What supposed to be an intimate and cheery birthday dinner, turned out to be a bittersweet one. Dianne, one of my girl friends, would be migrating to US and was scheduled to leave the week after. Among our group of ten, I am pretty tight with her. The thought of losing that someone who I could make that surprise call or visit to when I really need someone to talk to, is just really heart breaking. Yes, I do need my friends but I'm grown-up enough to be able to understand that they have to live their lives. We're not high school anymore. We're... getting old and getting a life, haha.
Since the rest of my barkada's still around, we all made a vow to meet up as often as we can.
I know you have your own set of friends too. And trust me, you should keep your long-time friends as as long as the thought of forever exists and hold them dearly in your heart because usually, you never know how new relationships would go. Life has taught me well. I learned that new-found friends can leave you hanging, burned and broken. The thing about old friends is that they will accept you at your worst and will help you pick yourself up when you have fallen - not leave you behind. That's how much they care and how much they believe in whatever that's good in you.
This entry is dedicated to Vanessa Martinez, Gicelle Canlas and Dianne Chan, three of my close friends whom I share about a decade of friendship now. Absence will indeed make the heart grow fonder. All our support to your overseas endeavors.
