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?


  1. Certainly, true friendship is not by how far but how well! But time gives you the opportunity to learn good behaviors from them and relearn the truly good behavior but unlearn the bad behaviors. Goodluck
