Sadly this is an article about how I found my best friend and how it basically went all wrong.

I met my best friend during freshman year of high school in volleyball. I was a setter and she was an outside hitter. You know how when you meet someone, you automatically click and know how you're supposed to be friends forever? yea, that happened. We became the best of friends and we always stuck together and soon everyone wished they had friendships like ours. we were everybody's friendship goals. All 4 years of high school. I will never forget this very special friendship, even if it ended badly. I grew through it and so did she. She was one of the best people in my life at the time and I never would had thought to lose her. She wasn't just my best friend, she was my sister from another mister.

Throughout high school, we did everything together and supported each other. We learned so much about each other and accepted the flaws we had. We knew each other to the T, or at least I thought I did.

I don't blame her for our fall out. I blame the independency I had and was used to versus the almost non existent one she had. It wasn't her fault. Outside factors sadly played into our shift in friendship. I could be wrong and she can fight me on this if she sees this article but I believe she was kept in this small but almost unbreakable bubble that I wasn't able to pin point for 4 years of our friendship until we went to the same university. That's when the bubble was popped and someone I didn't recognize has taken over and only little bits n' pieces of who I once knew was there. Maybe I just never really knew the real her I guess.

You'd think after going to the same university, we'd do everything together and combine friends that you guys meet outside of class and in class. But sadly, that wasn't the case. For about a month, everything was fine but I did have a doubtful feeling since day one of college about our friendship and it soon became a reality. I lost my friend to this thing called "reality".

It wasn't reality in high school but I believe college changed her for the most part. Maybe it was because I was further into finding who I was because of my past and she still needed to do the same. I blame outside factors for our fallout but because of what happened, this friendship is going to have to stay a past chapter in my life.
