I have been wrestling with a situation with a former 17 year long best friend and would love some feedback.
I will give you a short description of what happened..lol...After 17 years of friendship I moved back to my home state (where my bestie lived) and we were all so excited! Within a week my family was all set to spend the weekend at her home...what I forgot about was not knowing anyone in our new town and having to bring a small dog with me. This made the friend very nervous and the weekend was cancelled without any worries from myself. A battle ensued when I didn't call her for a few days...I wasn't mad, just busy moving and with my children. I apologized repeatedly, but to no avail.
At that point I thought we had just grown apart, our personalities were very different than 10 years before, so I assumed the friendship was over without a resolution in sight. We haven't spoken in a year.
Then a couple weeks ago I received a 3 page typed, and bulleted, letter from the former friend (who is now 8-months pregnant). The letter insists that I sit down and speak with her on 7 points of disagreement she has with me, the letter also claims private things about my marriage, and twisted stories.
I plan on just ignoring this letter for two reasons: 1) She is pregnant and any stress is not good, 2) I've really dealt with this in my mind and have moved on. I feel like the season for the friendship has passed.
What do you think? Thanks!
