I asked some of my friends if they would still be my friend if I was emo: out of all my friends, my best friend was the only one that said "We would grow apart quickly. STAY WHO YOU ARE NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS"
I have a feeling that I lost so many years with you. but then I also know that maybe we weren't ready. I hate myself a bit for not trying. but I was literaly crawling undergrownd when we had our first encounters.
