My ex best friend continually sends me e-mails apologizing about an old spat we had almost a year ago. I told her I want nothing to do with her and she does not seem to understand. I have avoided her and ignored her attempts at a second go at our friendship because I feel she is not a good person anymore and may hurt me again. What should I do? Forgive her and be friends again? Or keep ignoring her so she gets the picture?
Friend issues are always the toughest because these people know you best. What you have to keep in mind is this: the past is over. Whatever fight you two had can be resolved if you just re-communicate with her and see what went wrong. The best thing to do is at least try to work things out since she seems to be trying to patch things up. But, keep your guard up. Talk to her and let time pass before you talk to her on a personal level and rebuild the trust that was once there. This will take a good deal of time, but, if you let her in, it can only do well. Besides, a New Year is coming upon us, so why not start it fresh, conflict free and be the bigger person; get over the past and jump into the future with no regrets.
