Friday, 7th November

I had reminisced Tetsuya. I had tea with mutual friends of his and two counsellors in the memorial and talked about his death. Many of them thought this meeting was like talking about him and appreciate his life. However, the counsellors treated it like it was for the friends that Tetsuya left and not so much about himself. This made my friends angry and blamed them. I understood both sides and kept my thoughts to myself. My friends wanted to say thank you to him. The counsellors wanted to take care of us and not to depress ourselves. The meeting finished with a bad atmosphere, making me feel saddened. But I just wanted to say it was no one's fault. After that, I had dinner with my friends and we lightened the mood with each other's encouragement.
