When friendship's #30 Reflections

When a friendship changes or ends
By Mary K. Mennenga
Inspired by a very dear friend

Will show where the strength of your character is based
Is it based?
In resentment and bitterness with hostility and malice
What could be gained by this nothing?
But fear, mistrust and everyone keeps hurting
Then it's more about keeping score of who was hurt the most
The scar's it leaves on the heart's that never seem to fade
Or is it based
On understanding that no matter how hard we tried
Things don't workout the way we thought it would
It's not about blame or faults it's letting go
Understanding we've learned more than we lost
Gaining knowledge that sometimes letting go of a friend 
Is the best way, to truly be a friend to them
Remember the good and let the bad fade.
I know I will

This makes so much sense...and so well said also. I guess we all have to let go of a friend.
