I've missed one of my friends in the fellowship for 3 weeks now. This person is a member of my home group and someone whose company I enjoy. He had a lady friend move in about three weeks ago and since that time, I haven't seen or heard much from him.
Tonight at the meeting, he shared that he asked the lady to move out. She's in another program, has limited to no money, and has started to fall behind in the sharing of expenses. The whole situation has apparently not been idyllic. So, after an argument yesterday, they decided to split up.
It's ironic that when I was around them, I thought that their relationship was great. They seemed focused on each other, kind to each other, and genuinely content. My friend shared tonight that wasn't the case.
I'm sorry that things didn't work out but I'm glad to see him back at meetings and that he's relieved about the situation. It's easy to get involved with others and lose track of ourselves.
