RANT: Dear Friend, Good Luck to You.

I hardly go on a rant, but you know when you just need to write or type it out and re-read it later? Yeah. I think that's what I need to do. Sorry for the negative vibes!

Dear Friend,
How are you? I hope all is well. I haven't heard from you in quite a while. We got in touch recently and it brought all the good memories back. We seldom talk, but when we do, it's always great knowing how well you're doing. I know you're far away and you're living life, I am very happy for you.
You've always held me close to you, but now at this point in your life, do you have any slightest idea what's been going on as of late?
I've always been big on effort, and I feel you haven't kept up your side of this friendship. I would rather you refer to me as a "friend" or "old friend" because your lack of efforts and given our history, makes us just that. You have made it clear exactly where I stand and I refuse to be the one to always initiate and wait for a reply. You have helped me make my decision.
I value you as a person; I value the memories... but I value the present... The people around me who's married, has children, goes to school, working... living their busy lives. But the difference between them and you is that they find time, even if it's a quick "Hello." Could you honestly say you've tried?
When you finally decide to come back around, everything will look the same, and I guarantee it won't feel the same. As you move on and better your life, I'm moving on and doing just the same.  
Part of moving on is growing together, and part of growing up is letting go.
I wish you the best.
Best regards,
