She's made some kind of nasty remarks to me and about me. Once we were out with another friend. We were talking about college and how one of our classmates was working at hardware store but he was finally going back to school next fall. I said something like, "That's good. It just takes some people longer than others to finish school. Look at me." ('Cause, yeah, I'm going through school slowly.) She says, "Yeah. And look at you now. What a winner." In a super sarcastic tone. (I had just broke up with my DS's dad. So I'm a single mom, working as a cashier full time, and going to school full time.) I was hurt but didn't say anything. I don't stick up for myself very much.
Just a couple of days ago she tells my SIL that I must be loving all the attention my break up with my DS's dad has brought me. That one really ticked me off. If she knew anything about the situation she'd know I don't talk about it with anyone, and that I'm still really hurt and sad about it. This break up has been really hard on me and for one of my "best friends" to be saying stuff like this about me just sucks.
Those are just a couple examples. I don't know what to do anymore. I don't even want to talk to her anymore because of the stuff she's been saying. But how do I just let go of a 20+ year friendship? We've been friends since before we started kindergarten. We used to be there for each other through everything.
