I’ve done a few posts about bridesmaid drama to hear other people’s stories, but my “friend” of 10 years is very upset at me that she isn’t a member of my bridal party. And by very upset I mean that she hasn’t talked to me and when she did, she texted me a messy bunch of curse words related to the situation and my day.
We were extremely close in high school about 5-6 years ago, but she has since turned into a completely different person. She’s picked up some bad habits like showing off that she’s a smoker (excessively bragging), excessive drinking (again, excessively bragging), dropping out of school, mental issues, and she has an eating disorder. All of these things have contributed to someone that is a stranger to me.
When she was going through these hard times (the eating disorder) I tried to help her the best ways I knew how, but she now seems locked into the person she wants to be with these other habits (I don’t smoke or drink, and surely didn’t think she would be the type of person to brag about it). We’ve merely met up less than five times each year for coffee and “updates” on eachother’s lives, because I was concerned for her health. I feel bad that she considered me a “best friend of 10 years” (or at least used the line against me) but I don’t have a reciprocated feeling. I wouldn’t call upon her in a time of need, and woudln’t expect her to do the same. It was ALWAYS me that initiatied contact between us anyway. Sure as hell not a “best friend” relationship.
The wedding’s not for awhile, but what have your experiences been and did you end up sending a save the date or invite? Did she come?
