'Til Friends Meet Again

Some good things never last. Sadly, beautiful friendships are one of them.
When a friend goes away from your life, let go of that friend. The reason may not be clear. You might be confused what wrong you have done. Sure enough, you are not perfect. You might assume there is something you've done that displeases your friend. You want to ask. You want to communicate. But the reason your friend is going away is because he does not want any communication. He wants space. He wants to solve his own issues. Solving his issues alone might work for him best without your presence. Let your silence allow him to be silent; not as a battle of the will but as a respect for his space.
Just let go and wait. Give him space. Give him respect. Give him understanding. If he comes back be willing to welcome him back. If he does not, he may feel it would be better for the both of you to be apart. He knows much better what works for himself best. 
The letting go might be painful, especially when you know you have done nothing wrong; or if there is, it is your right to know it that you may stand yourself corrected. That you may learn from each other. But the fact that he just slips himself away from your presence means he no longer needs you at the moment. Or, perhaps he has the best of intentions for the both of you. Whichever, just let go.
The one thing that is left in the empty space he left in your heart is the loss of a number one fan, number one friend, number one encourager, number one believer in you. In short--it is hard to believe you lose someone who made you feel good about yourself. You have given that person the power to make you feel good, to make you feel better, to make you believe in yourself, to make you feel a star. Now that he is gone, would you become a nothing? Would you become less whole? On the emotional level it might seem to be; but on a deeper level it is not. You are still whole. You are still capable. You are still you. You do not need anyone to make you whole. You just lose a budding friendship. It hurts. But just feel the hurt and then move on. If he comes back, you are destined by life to be friends. If he does not, just let him go and glorify the experience that once in your life you have meet a friend as precious as he.
