Open Letter to my Former Best-Friend
Dear Former Best Friend,
(I won’t be saying names for obvious reasons)
I’ve decided we aren’t friends anymore, because we simply aren’t. I’m sure you’re confused and unsure of what happened. I honestly think you’re blind to it.
Friendship, just like any relationship is a two way street. And ours just wasn’t anymore.
You’re never there when I need you the most. For example, when my grandmother was in the hospital for two months, or even when she passed. Where were you?
Weeks later you reached out and you knew I was upset. And I gave you another chance, because I honestly do care about you. And I still do, I always will.
But I can’t keep putting in all this effort when you’re not returning it on your end.
I hope you know this decision didn’t come easy, matter of fact this is one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do.
I’ve decided I can’t be there to pick you up every time he breaks your heart, just for you to go back to him and forget all about me. I’ve picked you up from your boyfriend’s parents house countless times. The last time I picked you up from his house was because the cops got called, and if I hadn’t picked you up, you would’ve been sleeping in a jail cell. And honestly, I wish I hadn’t picked you up that night.. Maybe if I hadn’t you could have seen for yourself just how toxic your relationship is, and what he does to you. But that’s doubtful because love is blind. It really upsets me that I do all of this for you, and I can’t even get a text back.
As your best friend, my job isn’t to tell you what you want to hear. It’s to tell you what you need to hear. Just like you did when I was in a toxic relationship. But you don’t want to hear it, so you pushed me away.
I wish you nothing but the best in life, I wish you happiness.
But this relationship isn’t good for my mental health anymore.
And I have to say goodbye.
