Last night, I started thinking about an old friendship I had. This friendship fizzled out... mostly for good reasons- the main one being it was a really unhealthy relationship. Maybe you know the person I'm talking about.
What I was thinking about was all the good things this person started doing. They came to youth group, joined small groups, started hanging out with good people... then last summer happened and they pulled away. Completely.
It was really disappointing, but I guess I knew it was going to happen and was just hoping to be wrong. I wasn't. What I thought about while driving around last night was the person this individual can be. They threw away a lot of good things and my heart started aching for that good person I knew.
...I guess that's as far as my though process has gone since then on this particular subject.
