The story I speak of is the second story in the book: Delilah, by Chelsea Schott. It details a friendship born in a town not unlike where I grew up. A friendship that perishes in the same way that happened with me in the transition from junior high to high school, and again very recently. Whether you're in your teens or your 40's it seems that the emotions that accompany the growing apart of a friendship don't change that much, and Schott's description of such an occurrence was like a punch in the gut designed to remind me that the depth of the loss of a friendship hurts as much now as it did before I even had a driver's license.
That said, the writing wasn't as tight as it could have been. Many of the essays read like drafts, not like polished final pieces. That's not to say they weren't good, just that they didn't hit as hard as they could have.
I was absolutely right.
I mean, we’ve all had seasonal relationships with other women, true? And hopefully, we learn & grow from these friendships ( no matter how long they last. )
The short essays are beautifully written. In fact, a few of the authors brought me so far into their broken, painful stories, that I found myself drawn to find them on Twitter or Facebook, pleading- “Please, restore this friendship. You must. It’s not too late!”
I thoroughly enjoyed My Other E and have recommended to several of my friends.
Because every. single. relationship. teaches us who we are and who we desire to become in the end.
