After an exhausting relationship (you know the kind, where you feel it’s so completely lopsided you are almost shocked that the two of you are still friends), I treaded along the idea, that I should let this person drift out of my life for good. Especially after being wronged on two occasions. Each time I thought it however,  I felt ashamed…in part, because if I were in their shoes and my world became as dark as theirs, I’d want a friend to stick it out with me too…lopsided or not.

In hindsight, I’m grateful for sticking it out…not only has their world become much lighter, I also understand the many other layers less celebrated a friend must play from time to time.
