To All The Besties I’ve Lost

You never see it coming do you? When you have a best friend it’s because you trust them completely. Your best friend is supposed to get you, supposed to celebrate you, supposed to love you unconditionally. When they don’t, it hurts. It hurts more than anything I think. It feels like someone reached into your chest and ripped your heart out. 

It’s hard to breathe, hard to sleep, hard to get through the day without being stopped suddenly in your tracks. Sometimes it’s okay. Sometimes you can forget. But it’s in those moments when something funny happens and you immediately go to message them and realize that you can’t anymore. It’s when you have a brilliant idea that you want to share with them but you realize as you pull out your phone that you’re not friends anymore so you slowly put it away while a sadness begins to pull you under. 

Losing a friend is awful but losing a best friend? That’s devastating. Maybe I should have seen it coming. There were signs, there were patterns. But I thought I was special. I thought I was different. The truth is, I guess I wasn’t and there’s nothing I can do about that.

What I can do is forgive. What I can do is bless & release and move on. And the best thing I can do? Make sure that I never do this to anyone else. Isn’t that really the most important thing we can learn through these painful experiences? We can either choose to become angry or bitter and turn around and hurt someone else OR we can choose to rise. We can choose to forgive so that we don’t become bitter or angry and then we can move forward promising ourselves that we won’t do it to someone else because we know just how much it hurts. 

To all the friends I’ve lost throughout my life—I’m sorry for my part in the ending of our friendship. I wish you every happiness and I will do my best to be better in the future. 

I think that’s all any of us can do.

More About Me!

I published my first book in 2020 and went on to publish several more books within a year. I write fiction and non fiction and love to help others write and publish books as well.

I was adopted as a baby, have gone through stage four metastatic cancer, and nearly lost my life during my last pregnancy due to placenta percreta. I believe that we go through difficult circumstances so that we can reach back into the fire with buckets of water to help others.

My life ambitions include expanding my non profit organization to provide financial relief to families going through an unexpected medical crisis, building safe haven homes for women and their children escaping domestic violence situations, and learning how to homestead in order to become more self sufficient.



I dropped out of high school in the 11th grade, switched to an alternate school and was valedictorian the following year.


I met my husband on a sort of blind date when I was 15 and have been in love with him ever since (married for nearly 15 years now!).


I’ve always homeschooled my three amazing kids because I genuinely love getting to hang out with them every day.
