When a friend will always be a friend
When it comes to childhood friends, alot can happen. As you grow together, especially if your friend is of the opposite sex you never know if when you grow up you will end up together or being something more. That just happened to to me, I had a good childhood friend, we always did things together and we grew up practically together. But over the years we had a crush on each other, however, we were young and didn't do anything about it. Now I just found out he is engaged and as I think about it, I am happy for him because as we grew up, all we ever felt for each other was only a crush, nothing more. I can freely say that we were only meant to be friends after all these years and that is something that will be cherished.
I'm sure this has happened to many people, they have had a childhood friend that they may have had feelings for but find out it was only something like a crush and it passed. As children, you play with each other and are best buddies and as you grow into your teenage years, maybe a few secrets here and there you might have shared with each other. What about those times you hung out and just enjoyed each others presence? Those are all good memories that is good to hold on too.
Sometimes you have that feeling deep inside that no matter how much you want to be with your friend, that you will always just be friends. You may have imagined having a family with your friend one time in the future but somehow destiny has a way to mess with your life. There is always that special someone out there and it may not always be your childhood friend.
The best thing to do is to just stay friends and hold on to some good memories that will make you happy to known them for a long time. Friends will always be friends forever no matter what happens in the future and that is one thing I have learned throughout many years. We all go our separate ways but deep inside we will always be friends.
