Thank you for being a friend?

I meant to write sooner, but the last couple of days have been a bit of a whirlwind. I was in Chicago for business and some great business developments occurred. It is everything my vision board has been dreaming of!! 🙂

Then, on Wednesday afternoon, I received a text from a “friend” that included choice phrases such as “are you f*cking kidding me?!” And “Done even bother to reply because you will certainly not be hearing from me again.” All because she assumed that I moved out of our office space for a personal reason, rather than a business reason, and her assumption was wrong. 

I was thrown for a loop. I have not received a “I am not going to speak to you again” threat since I was 15 years old. Friendships have faded over the years, of course, but my friends and I let them fade gracefully, as not all things last forever. Also, I feel like actually having a “break up” discussion sort of puts a damper on the happy memories of the friendship. Especially this one, where the “friend” told me that this was the “straw that broke the camel’s back.” and “our relationship is broken.” LOL. I hope that she feels better after getting all of that off of her chest. I certainly don’t. I knew that this friendship was not right for the last two years, but our husbands and kids are friends and we did have fun together a couple of times a year. None of that was worth risking in order to angrily text a break up speech to her. What are your thoughts?  Truthful friend break-ups or let them fade into the sunset?
