Closing old doors

I recently had an old friend send me a message telling me that he is very aware of the pain he caused in my life. The constant drama, the pain of lose of friendship by a person I called my best friend for many years.

And I find myself at a loss.

I have forgiven him before after a different seperation of friendship, just to have him do the same thing again.

I know better then to fall for this again.

I felt nothing however and I thought I would.

I felt no relief, no concern, no worry about how he has been.

Have I grown that much that I have figured out how to shut the door permanently on people who have shown constant negativity?

  1. Maybe you read too much into his apology. He says that he is aware of (and presumably, sorry about) the pain he has caused you. Sometimes people ask for forgiveness because they are on a program of “getting rid of stuff”, and guilt is “stuff”. So, if you accept his apology, that can effectively close the chapter, and it doesn’t mean you have to refresh the friendship. That choice is yours – always.
