From what I gather, it seems like this friendship was atrophying for quite a while…you can extend yourself to the ends of the earth but just like any relationship it takes two.  If she’s not willing to work to continue the friendship you can’t force it, and I know it hurts…it’s happened before to me and I felt the same way.  When you feel like its such a stupid thing which could be avoided, but the truth is, its out of your hands.  She’s making this choice and its not a reflection on you, sometimes people grow apart 🙁

 

Mourn it by all means, but don’t let it consume you, you can’t control what other people do only your reactions to it, so try to eventually let it roll off you.  She will be missing out on a good friend.  And who knows?  Maybe a few years from now when life shapes her in whatever way it will, she will start thinking about you and realise she was stupid for treating you like that.  If that happens be wary but give her the benefit of the doubt, because people do grow.  But for now try and live your life and don’t let her actions bring you down 🙂

Yeah its probably because its the death of something you treasured and that’s totally understandable 🙁  It bothered me too a LOT when it happened to me, it was for a similar reason (only I was 19 lol).  Good news is, years later we reconciled because she approached me and tried to make amends for the past.  That may or may not happen with you so don’t hang your life on it but its a possibility 🙂
