Friendship is a mess, what should I do?
hey girl, I hope you’re okay. I completely understand where you’re coming from - as I’ve been in a situation where I’ve been cut off and didn’t know whether I did something wrong or not. It sucks.
Firstly, maybe you should give her time and space. If this friendship meant anything to her (which I’m sure it did) then she should come around soon enough after thinking things through. I know this will suck, but time will tell. I promise you.
Secondly, I know that this is important to you, obviously because you’ve posted on here. But as her friend, just be weary and try to not make things worse for her. Maybe she’s copping it from her sister right now and wants to sort it out on her own. I’m sure she’s grateful for you and everything you have done for her, but it’s best not to get involved in their family arguments and problems - because it may fall back on you in the long run. Just reassure her that you’re here for her if she needs absolutely anything and that you don’t want anything bad to happen to your friendship as it means a lot to you. Leave it at that.
I hope this helps.
