Well, it’s Thursday; just a few more days of Matriculation Week. I wonder how it is going. Has anyone dropped out? Are they remaining strong? Are friendships being formed?
The answer to that question seems obvious to me. I would say that the friendships forged during this time of ridicule and pain will be friendships that are like none other and will be the friendships that will last a lifetime.
When I look deep down in, perhaps this is one of the things that frighten me. I have always been really close to Reese and wonder if the changes that he is making will leave me out in the dark alone to fumble my way through without him?
I knew all of his childhood and teenage friends. We all grew together. Now those boys and girls have all headed in a separate direction. I feel rooted here until Drew and I are able to make our way into the future.
Sometimes I feel quite selfish to even consider hanging on to what I had. I know deep down that Reese and I will still have a bond. It may change, but that change could make our relationship that much stronger.
I suppose my own insecurity is a noose around my neck. I just need to look to the future by continuing Daring to Let Go and trust that the friendship my son and I once had will still be there when all is said and done.
