We're facing an unprecedented amount of rejection right now.
I recently lost a friend, N.
N. wasn’t a particularly close friend, and we didn’t have a falling out per se. The friendship just fizzled, until eventually he decided to unfollow me on Twitter, to put a final nail in a slow process of undoing.
A flaccid “what happened?” text went unresponded to, and just like that, the relationship was over.
