Best Way to Break Off a Friendship?
So, I’m going to try and keep this short and sweet. Basically I need to break off the friendship with my best friend since second grade. Over the past year, we’ve gotten into huge fights, but that’s not the main reason. I’d prefer not to go into details except for the fact that she’s lied and betrayed my trust countless times, and I’m finally fed up with trying to repair the friendship for old times sake. There are a few problems though- First off, she’s extremely immature. When you try to confront her about things, she automatically gets defensive, no matter how cordial & calm you are in your confrontation. She’ll storm off after cursing you out & making a scene, go cry and complain to whoever she can find, then send an apology email a few hours later. I promise that I don’t mean to sound horrible when I say all of this, but this has literally happened every time I’ve ever tried to confront her about anything in all the years I’ve known her. She’s very reactive. Secondly, she’s still very good friends with some of my best friends, and I don’t want to pull them into this. I know that if I confront her, she’s going to go complain to them about it, and I really don’t want them to be stuck in the middle of this whole mess. This is between her and I, and I don’t want to pull others into it.
Also, I’m at the point where I never want to see her again, except to end this whole thing. :| I haven’t talked to her since the last day of school a few weeks back, and as of now she has no idea about my feelings. (long story). So: what’s the best way to end the friendship & cut off the little parasite without causing drama or inadvertently hurting my other friends?
Thank you very much. (:
