SECRET REGRET OF THE DAY: September 17, 2017

“I regret being so self involved that I wasn’t able to…”

My friend, whom I’ve always had a crush on, moved back home to taker care of her mother who’d been diagnosed with cancer. Her mother was undergoing chemo, and everyone was optimistic. I started seeing my friend regularly, and began to develop feelings for her. She insisted that it was not a good time for a relationship, but I forced the issue and we became romantically involved. When her mom started getting worse she began shutting me out. I had fallen in love with her by this time, so I didn’t handle it very well and said some pretty hurtful things that effectively ruined our relationship and friendship. Her mom started hospice a week later and died after a month. I regret being so self involved that I wasn’t able to understand what she was going through and be there for her as a friend when she really needed it. I have not felt the same about someone since.

  1. Just write her a note expressing how you feel and apologize in regards of her mother and what she was going through and that you did not tend to say the things you did. It was an emotional period in both your lives.
