Death of a friend

A good friend called me just now to let me know an old girlfriend of mine committed suicide. We were "we" for about two weeks, but we had been friends since the second grade. I'm sad. Sad she's gone, sad she killed herself, sad I haven't seen her since we broke up, sad I haven't seen my other friends that let me know about it. Wow, I'm officially an adult. Our first baby, and we don't see friends unless there's weddings and funerals. Sorry, I didn't want this to be about me. I want this to be about the ache that her parents are feeling right now. I want this to be about the ache that she had that led to this. Jaime, I'm sorry.

I'm sorry to hear about your friend. Being officially grown up sucks, but I try not to think about it too much. Then you start to act like one and that's even worse.

Events like these give me a reminder to make sure I'm doing what I really want, not just what I think I really want to be doing.
