From Sarah : Friendships Can Hurt
I have written briefly about losing a friendship that tore me in two. She was another Angel Mom . Someone I called Sister. Family. I was closer to her than almost anyone else. Or so I thought.
When she wrote me : accusing me of betraying her…. I was shocked. Rocked to my core. Hurt.
Just a day before she had shared a huge secret with me. Then the next she ended our friendship.
For a year and a half. I was blocked from her Facebook . She left a door open though : I still had access to her son’s memorial page. I was able to write there. Leave messages.
I left a few. On birthdays and holidays. Did I try hard enough to reach her? No, Not really. I shut myself off like I have done for so long.
Friendships are hard at times. I have a couple of girl friends from grade school and high school.
There is still a distance there. One totally of my own making.
I will continue to write on this subject.
Now for the post that started this conversation.
When You’ve Felt Rejected By
Her guest writer wrote the following book :
By Christine Hoover
My heart began beating quickly as I reread the first few lines and saw that, in fact, I’d read it right the first time.
The biting words sunk in deep.
A friend had misunderstood me and not given me the benefit of the doubt, and she was writing to let me know I had disappointed her.
We’ve all been hurt by someone we considered a friend, whether it’s an inconsiderate word or an unexpected betrayal.
