It’s so hard to leave.
I have a very close friend and a partner.
I’ve known my best friend for 6 years.
My partner I have known 6 months.
My best friend is so close to me that we’re like sisters but even closer.
I’m in love with my newest friend and plan to go live with her almost 800 miles away.
My best friend stays here. I’m her closest and really only friend and she needs me.
I cry because I don’t want to leave her.
She cries because I’m leaving her. She will be lost without me.
Then there is my partner. She wants me to live with her. She needs me too. We have a lot of plans to do in our few remaining years.
I cry out that I can’t have both of them with me.
My best friend says it’s too cold where I’m going and prices are too high. And we’d have to go a long way out of town to stores and doctors and other businesses. She doesn’t like that.
She wants my partner to live in the south closer to us.
I’d like that, but my partner owns property and is paying on it. She can’t go anywhere until it is completely paid off.
Then we might not go south but further north.
Oh my gosh!
My heart is torn between my two loves.
It aches because I can’t have both.
Why is it like that?
Why do people say we can’t have both? Why?
Why do we have to take one and leave the other?
It’s not fair!
