I want to be a good friend, but I don’t want it to be one sided. I learned a few alarming things and really needed to talk to her about it. But it was almost two weeks before she responded to me, and my that time I had found someone else to discuss what happened with. But what if I get into a spot and really need her and she just doesn’t feel like responding? I don’t have any other local friends to call.

Okay so I read this last night and held off on responding because I knew my initially reaction would be harsh.

I would say give her time. Obviously she is depressed at the moment and if she experienced a death recently than this is her way of mourning. She probably just needs to disconnect for awhile. I would say to just assure her that you are there for her and praying for her. Other than that just give her space and time to mourn.

I am sorry I didn’t clarify this. Her cousin died three years ago.

I see where you are coming from. And I understand why you are frustrated. While 3 years seems like a long time it might not feel that way for her. She might still be struggling with anger about her cousin dying or she might still be mourning. or maybe she is struggling with depression.

We have discovered her cousin before and I know she has recovered. She had only met her a fee times and she was eight when she passed in a bad horseriding accident.

So she’s busy and stressed? Then her not being able to always be there makes perfect sense

It would make sense if she is that busy. I have a hard time keeping up with my best friend sometimes and we’ve been friends since birth! I would say try to have an in depth conversation and see if you can get to the bottom of it if it is really starting to bother you.

I have asked my mom to invite her over ( My mom makes all the arrangements) so I can talk to her. I figure face to face is better than texting. And she is really easy to read so I will know if there’s something deeper than stress.
