During my childhood years I had a few good friends. My very first best friend was a girl named Kelly that I went to middle school and graduated high school with. Kelly and I did everything together. Whenever you saw her you saw me. Even our very first cars were the same. We were literally two peas in a pot. I considered Kelly as my sister and someone that I could trust, but as we got older I started to see a change in our relationship. That’s when I learned that my best friend really wasn't my best friend after all.
In the year of 2010 I was preparing for one of the biggest days of my life. My wedding day! I had one matron of honor, a maid of honor and three bridesmaids. My best friend Kelly was one of my bridesmaids and I could tell that she was thrilled to be part of my big day. She helped me shop and got things prepared when it came ...view middle of the document...
I asked myself how she could even compare the two. I didn't want to go back and forth with her so I let her have her way on that one. The weekend came and we were headed out to a restaurant she had picked downtown. We waited and waited but no one else showed up to celebrate her birthday with her. I felt kind of bad for her at that moment until I realized that it was only me and her for the night. We finished dinner and that's when it all started.
After walking out of the restaurant she told me that we were about to go on Beale Street for a walk. She was then reminded of what we had talked about days before, but all she could tell me was it's my birthday and that's all that mattered. I began to get upset because she was only caring about herself at the moment and that she was trying to force me to do something that I didn't want to do. So I told her that she could stay if she wanted and that I would have my fiancé pick me up. After about 10 minutes we finally left for home. She drove the entire way to my house in silence. She didn't have anything to say to me because she felt that her night had been ruined. The next day, I received a text message saying that she was taking herself out of my wedding due to me not doing what she wanted me to do for her birthday. The only thing I could think of at the moment was that we had an agreement before we even went out that night so I didn't understand where she was coming from. After that my heart felt empty due to me losing the one person I trusted for many years.
A year and a half passed and of course I made the first move. I called and checked on her because I wanted to let her know that I didn't have any hard feelings with her and since that call we've been talking a little off and on now. I don't feel the same way when it comes to her anymore though. She still considers me as her best friend forever but in my heart I don't feel the same. I finally realized that a true friend wouldn't do you that way.
