You make a friend in elementary school and she is your best friend and the she moves away when you are in the 5th grade. You lose contact with them for a number of years and then find each other again. At first they are all friendly and such and then all of a sudden they won't return your phone calls or emails.
Here is the post I have in my journal--
"I found a elementary school friend on Facebook and friended her she accepted and we started talking and would talk every day on Facebook or send each other some type of message it went on for about month and a half to two months; I sent her a Christmas card and got no response; have sent her messages about once a week and nothing; sent her a Valentine's Card and no response.
Then a couple weeks ago got this message from her--"Sorry, I haven't gotten with you. Most of the time, I'm just exhausted. I haven't had a 2 day weekend in a month. and for my one day off I've either driven to illinois or up north for one day with my kids and boyfriend. We are trying to buy a house in Greenville. My very own house. I'm afraid to even talk about it because I've lost so much before. Your mom would be so proud of you. I am so proud of you. Love ya"
We were best friends and inseparable from kindergarten through fifth grade when she moved and we lost contact with each other.
My question is would you continue to stay in contact with her and send her messages or would you just leave it alone.
It hurts tremendously because we were so close and when she started contacting me back she acted like there was never any time between us that we weren't in contact with each other. I don't treat people this way and it hurts to be treated like this.
Just wondering what you would do. Please no bashing or negative remarks"
So my question is would you be hurt or would you just move on or what. Thanks

No I wouldn't be hurt. I would just figure that we had grown up differently and had nothing much in common, had different interests, different everything. So there would be no point in staying 'friends'. Friendships end for a huge variety of reasons, that's life.

Next question overall
How to discipline a child that is not affected by discipline if any type?
