In the day, my visiting aunts are being entertained by my mom and my aunties. As I need to ferry my kids around, I don't have the time to accompany them on these trips.
Last night, after dinner with my parents, finally I had some time alone with my favourite aunt. As we chatted into the night, one hot topic was about friendship. She also experienced what I went through and fully understood my feelings on this issue.
She too lost long term friends that spanned for as long as 20 years. I was happy that I found someone who understood what I am going through. I was able to tell her whole-heartedly about this story. As she is stronger than I, her advice for me is to move on and don’t have to feel bad about it as I have done more than being just a friend. If she don't appreciate, that is her loss, not mine.
Of course it hurts but as compared to another betrayal that happened 10 years ago. This time round, I am much stronger. I no longer cry over such matter anymore. Maybe it was a sign to tell me that I am exhausted from this friendship.
I have taken on a new perspective on friendship. Whatever it is, I am glad that I shared my true feeling with my aunt.
It sure feels good to let it out. I felt free of this burden and from now onwards, I will just put this whole saga out of my life once and for all.
Now let me share this wonderful bite size Banana Chocolate Bites that is deliciously soft and moist.
It is a recipe that I had done before but this time round, I incorporated Banana into it.
