Last night I lost one of my close friends. She was also family to me. She came into my life as a young child, struggling with a torn family. I spent time with her everyday to fill the gap she was missing in her life. Maybe I got to close!?! She went every where with me and I went every where with her as well. I already miss her and its only been 1 day. She grew up right before my eyes into a young women. She decided I was not good for her to be with in public as I was to intimidating. It crushed me. It all started with a get together with for a team activity. I was asked to help with it and she didn’t want me there. Her words where “I will have to behave”. Which in turn made me want to be there more. I asked her what the real reason was she didn’t want me to volunteer to help was and that’s when she said “you scare and intimidate me in public & around my friends”. I was instantly crushed and upset. So then I said you want me to stay away and not go any where with you? The she back peddled. I then could not see her without my blood pressure going through the roof. I then left her and stayed away all night. Today I am still hurt and feeling like I lost a friend. Her parents talked to her and she pretty much said that’s not what she meant. Eve thought that’s not what she meant that’s how it came out and it still hurts. If you are wondering this is about a 15 year old and myself. I am her adopted aunt. I do everything for her, but that is going to slow down. We will never have the close relationship that we had before.
