Saying goodbye is never easy. Not because of a death, but out of choice.
This is going here because I have nowhere else to go with it.
I had a friend from a few years back. We rarely talked, with weeks or months between messages. Two years ago I decided to push and we started to message each other every day. I started to grow feelings for her. She is local, but we have only met up twice because of stupid anxiety issues. Last year I told her I had strong feelings for her, but she didn't feel the same way. I felt so horrible but we remained friends, because why throw away a great friendship over my stupid heart and feelings. It was going okay. My feelings for her were still there. I'd get stupid ideas that maybe she would change her mind and my mind would take messages the wrong way. I guess things got to a tipping point lately. Within the last hour I sent a short message saying goodbye. I unfriended her in every place we were friends and here I am. She was my closest and really, the only friend I had.
Not sure what to say other than I'm sorry to hear you're going through that. :( I'd say it's important to allow yourself to feel these things as it was a real relationship/friendship.
Myself, I said goodbye to my tame parrot of 8 years just this Sunday. Had to find a new home as our bond was broken from him having various illnesses over 2 years.
These decisions are tough, but I feel like I made the right choice and with a bit of time I hope you do, too!
