*One Of My Friends*
That one little hashtag is filled with funny, loving and heartbreaking posts.
If you’ve ever fallen for one of your friends, you know what I’m talking about when I say heartbreaking posts. To fall for or even have a crush on someone so close to your heart, someone that is a huge part of your life and someone that means the world to you but not be able to be with them. It’s a hard pill to swallow.
All you’ve ever wanted was them, it could be a simple crush, it could be a crush or find feeling you’ve had for a few months but then there are the ones that hurt and you have to suppress to the deepest parts of your soul. The ones that sting a little every time you see them with someone else, it’s a knife through the heart. When they talk about them, it’s nails on a chalkboard. Now don’t get me wrong, all you’ve ever wanted was them to be happy and when you see them smiling, your heart is happy yet a bitter sweet feeling.
They’re as happy as you have always wanted them but you’re not the reason behind that smile, that laugh or those heart eye emojis.
You have to keep suppressing and supporting because it’s your duty as a best friend, it’s your duty as a human being to know what someone else needs to make them happy.
To all of those people, guys and girls, it doesn’t matter which one. To all of you that are the friend referred to in that #OOMF. Be easy on your friends heart, be mindful of the bad days they may have but most importantly..be understanding that sometimes, somethings you say will hurt them. You won’t know it though. They would never let you know. Tread lightly on them, on that friendship. It gets easier for them when they see your happiness is for good this time. They will always love you. I will always love you.
