- Wedding: May 2013
In high school I befriended a girl because I felt bad for her, as she did not have many other friends. She is a very rude, self-centered, and negative person and people distance themeselves from her for those reasons. She moved across the country after university. She tries to keep in touch every once in a while but I definitely do not consider her a close friend by any means. In fact, I’d like to cut off all ties between her and I as I simply cannot deal with the negativity anymore. I recently stood in her wedding and now that I am engaged I know she fully expects to be standing in my wedding as well. However, I do not want her to stand for me, nor do I want her to be involved in the wedding in anyway. Knowing the girl in question I know I need to flat out tell her that she will not be involved. There is no way I could just avoid the topic and not discuss it at all. I know this makes me seem like a really awful person but I really do try to see the good in everything. How do I tell her that she will not be standing in my wedding without hurting her?
