Hold your head up, Girlfriend.  Sometimes people can be soo selfish that they forget this isn’t about them.  You’ll be married soon and then you don’t have to answer her phone calls.

It’s totally understandable that you’re coming from a place of hurt, but maybe she’s reacting to your stand-offishness. You two are going to be family soon, and sometimes it’s the small steps that make a difference. She was out of line going to the florist without you, but is there something you can do to make her feel more included? Give her a task or detail to “own” that you don’t have strong feelings about. 

When she starts bringing up the past and has a meltdown, try not to react. Just say, “I’m sorry you feel that way. What can we do together to make things better right now?”


It can be hard to move on from the past and be the bigger person, but it will totally be worth it if you can have a more peaceful relationship in the future. Good luck!
