Chris in VA Posted September 24, 2012 Share Posted September 24, 2012 (edited) I will prolly delete later, so pls don't quote. I receivd a letter (a REAL letter!) from a childhood friend, who was my "best" friend and also a college roommate. She was my maid of honor, and I was hers. I kept in touch, always the one to call, for many years. It was always as if we just lived around the corner from each other. We don't share the same perspective on many things (religion, abortion, drug use, etc) but were very dear to each other. She has come to see me once, and I went to see her a couple of times, but that isn't the problem (neither had $ to travel, so it's ok). When my brother died, she did not offer any comfort. She later said she just didn't know what to say. She's never really been that supportive of me--she sings beautifully, has her PhD, etc-- and it was clear to me a few years ago that she is always the one wanting the Kudos, if that makes sense. She's truly a loving, kind person, but...IDK. I feel weird. She wrote a 6 page letter, wanting to reconnect and telling me how happy she is now. I don't know how to respond. My life has basically sucked. I'm angry at her for just blithely telling me how wonderful her life finally is. She knows a little of my story but not the hell I've been thru. What should I do? I am not a "write her back and tell her how insensitive she is being" person, because she doesn't realize how I feel. I am all for sharing that, but I feel I'd be complaining, and I also dont want to chastise her for finally reaching out to me. My life has not been easy these past 7 years or so, but she didn't bother to keep in touch, and that hurts.
