Losing a friendship

Bad is to suddenly lose it; after a fight, a great misunderstanding, or maybe simply moving further away from each other.

Worse than losing a friendship suddenly is to slowly lose it, over months or even more.

Worse than that again is to lose it slowly while realising it is happening, trying to stop it, but feeling unable to; like lifting an increasingly heavy weight with a slippery rope.

And even worse – the worst? – is to foresee, to predict in advance that whole process; to know that over the next couple of months, you will lose a friend, slowly, already knowing that you won’t be able to stop yourself losing the feelings you still have at that moment.

(So: guess what has happened to me over the last few months. Yup.)
