Something sad has happened to me a couple of days ago.
A good old friend asked me for something and I had to refuse. I don't think I should go into details here, but she asked me to be a witness during her wedding ceremony – which will be – how should I put it? – very un-traditional, contains parts that are actual blasphemy, and actively participating in it would go against my religious convictions.
So, very gently and politely, I told her I just couldn't do it.
I'm glad no one witnessed the scene that followed. I heard that I'm a narrow-minded religious fanatic; not a true friend; a real snake; and she won't 'tolerate my religious nonsense' anymore. She will never speak to me again.
It's sad, but I think we reached a parting of the ways. We've been friends for around 5 years and shared many happy and sad moments together, many exciting experience and just normal days. We've laughed and cried and shared and talked and each knew about every important thing that was happening in the other's life.
But I guess this has come to an end.
