True Friendship vs. Short Friendship

I woke up one day and decided I no longer wanted to be friends with you.

It was a sad realization, and quickly I cut my ties. I think a part of me knew our friendship was circling the drain. We had plans to go to a concert the next day, but I was a no-show. I never apologized. This one bothers me to this day.

In reflection, I realized I was not being a true friend. Can a short friendship be a true friendship? I wish I knew the answer to that question.

What I do know is that a true friendship is cultivated over time. You are so connected that you can go months without seeing each other and pick right back up as no time has passed. I have those kinds of friends. I cherish those kinds of friendships.

But something was different about our friendship. I felt stuck. Too much uncertainty built uncomfortableness.

I needed to separate our spaces. I needed to grow. I needed to commit to the life and friends I have now, and sadly, I saw no place for our friends there. So I ghosted you.

Was it the right thing to severe ties? Yes. Was it the right way? No.

It’s been years now. I don’t even know where you reside. From time-to-time, I wonder if you’re doing alright but, very swiftly I forget you.

So guys I have a friendship question- Was it true friendship if it was such a short friendship?

What do you guys think-Can short friendships be true friendships?
