My friend and I were best friends for 5 yrs, there for each other, well sorta...she is always there to talk over the phone or if you came to her house but she never made the effort to come to my house. I use to live in the same city as her, and she rarely went to my house but when I moved 30 min away she was the same way. So the fact that I moved further didn't change anything. I always had to make the extra effort because she wouldn't. I asked her about it and she said she's selfish and that's why she doesn't make the effort to drive to me because I did it and she didn't have to. Well then stooped going the extra mile and just gave her what she gave me. So our friendship wasn't as close because of it. Well Jan 1,2011 she had her sons 3rd bday party at 5pm. My dd stayed at my moms house the night before, which is an hr away from me (30 min from her) do I went to pick my dd up early around 9am. I also had a new years party that day at 1pm with my inlaws. My mom told me she was bleeding alot and she went to the emergency room under advisement of her doctor. My mom was babysitting my 4 nieces so she asked if i can stay and watch them. Of course I did but had to cancel my plans at 1pm and also called my bff and left a message to let her know what was going on in case it interfered in the dinner that night. Around 4:45pm my friend calls me and acts like she didn't hear the message but sounds pissed. She asks if I'm coming or not and I told her the situation again like I did on her voice message. I could t bring 5 kids with me and my mom was still in the hospital. She was pissed and basically hung up on me. I called her later around 7 when my mon arrived from hospital and was trying to come by to spend time with them since I missed most of the party. No answer. I call two days after that, no answer. Then I called again that day and we spoke. She said it was a good reason foe me not being able to go but yet she was still pissed about it. I told her if she can't understand then there's nothing to talk about and she basically stop taking to me. She now friend requested me on Facebook. I sent her a text and said if you want to be "friends" again we need to talk first.
Would you talk to your best friend again after that?
I have mixed emotions, I missed her but I am extremely hurt that she couldn't see the situation better. I mean I had canceled my whole day and take care of a 3 month old, two 2 yr olds, a 5 yr old and a 10 yr old which was hard and was stressed about my mom. How could she act this way??
