Cowgirl_Warrior Posted January 7, 2020 Share Posted January 7, 2020 This topic is really hard for me but I know I don't want to just forget it. My best friend and I have been friends for over 10 years now. We meet each other when we kept our horses at the same place. As the years went by we became very close. When I moved she even kept her horse at my place. We literally have done everything together. Almost every picture I have of adventures shes in it. Then came the day that broke my heart. Let me start off by saying she's always had family problems. Her family is full of liars and narcissists. Figuratively speaking, they are trying to trip each other every second they get. My friend is the most normal in that family. Anyways, the day came where her mom for some reason tried to convince her that we were trying to take her horse from here. Which there was absolutely no reason for that to even be thought, she just needed a reason to break us apart. Which her mom succeeded. My friend moved her horse to her grandma's and we didn't talk for about a year. Eventually she reached out to me and we became friends again. We were inseparable and saw each other almost everyday. I went on trips with her grandma and her. Whenever she needed help or helping her do something for her grandma, I was there. I would drop everything and come to her aid. So would my dad. Countless times we rescued her when her car broke down or fixed it for her. She lived with us for a whole summer. This girl wasn't just my best friend, she was my sister. I cared about her with all my heart and still do. Fast forward to only like two years ago. She finally got a boyfriend that she thought she was gonna marry. That's when she started slipping out of my life. Everything became about him and he was controlling and didn't want me around her. It wasn't until they broke up after almost a year that I had my friend back. Now she moved back with her mom (she was living with her grandma) and I haven't seen her in almost a year... Again. What's worse, she doesn't talk to me and ignores my messages. Now I understand that people grow up, change, drift away but how can you do that to the person you've spent every waking moment with. To the person that was always there for you when no one else has. I don't claim to be the greatest friend on the planet but I'm loyal and I don't leave people. When they need me, I'm there. I've given up trying to talk to her cause I figure I've tried enough. I see her on Facebook hanging out with other people and doing things so it's not like she just has no time for me. She doesn't even talk to her grandma anymore. I just don't understand why this is happening, is it cause of her family, or was my stressful life too much for her stressful life? Even though it's nothing we haven't handled before. Does she just not need me anymore because she now has others to do everything I did for her? I can't help but wonderful if all this time she was just pretending and using me because I can't find a good reason as to why she's doing this. I've tried really hard to forget about it but it's becoming impossible. Especially when my family and other friends always ask where she is or why she's not around. She still looks at my Snapchat story or likes things of mine on Facebook. I've considered going to her work at a restaurant and trying to talk to her but I don't believe that would be the right way to go about this. Any advice would be great because I'm at a total loss. Do I just give up and forget about our friendship? Even though we even have a matching tattoo, she sold me her old horse, every picture she's in it, and apparently the last 10 years mean nothing.
