When a long time friendship ends it is heartbreaking. My best friend of 15 years broke our friendship in minutes just because she thought I was not worth it.
There were some stupid rumors about me which were spread by this girl who was always jealous of what I did. She always tried to pull me down and made me feel terrible about myself. Every now and then I would cry and be depressed.
My best friend knew all this. One fine day when I couldn’t take this shit anymore, I stood up for myself and guess what! My best friend wasn’t on my side. She supported this other girl. Things didn’t go well after that.
It broke my heart. But, as they say, time heals everything, I got over it.
It’s been almost a year since this drama. Today, I came across this letter written by Emma Kruse to her ex friend. I feel the same way like Emma.
So if in case my ex- best friend out there is reading my blog, this one is for you!
Dear Ex Friend,
I don’t hate you. Well, at least I am trying to see things differently. I know we avoid each other at every function, and are no longer Facebook friends. Truth is, I want to get a few things off of my chest.
As much as I wish we could put everything behind us and go back to being the way we used to, unfortunately, things don’t work like that. We are different people now.
You said some pretty nasty things to me, but I probably didn’t react in the right way either. I told you about my problems, my accomplishments and my darkest secrets. Honestly I feel a little vulnerable that you know so much about me.
What I want to tell you is: I don’t trash talk you, even though you might think I do. I don’t have anything bad to say about you. That’s because I know all the great things about you.
What I want to tell you is: I will still be here for you. Don’t get me wrong—I don’t expect us to go out for a coffee date. We will never have the same relationship we once did. But if something was really wrong, and you had no one to turn to, you know I’d still do anything for you. You can come to me no matter how bad the circumstances are.
You made me laugh ’til I cried on the floor. You would come get me unannounced for hungover McDonald’s. You stalked my crush for me. You let me borrow your favorite heels. We had so much fun together, it’s strange to look back and see how such a great friendship ended so badly.
But what I want to tell you is: Thank you.
Thank you for being such a great friend to me the past few years. Thank you for reminding me that nothing is guaranteed, not even your friends. You have taught me more than you’d know.
Your Ex-Best Friend
