Why I wrote this: My mom‘s ex-best friend turned out to be a real witch. And because I love my mommy and know that she is an amazing friend.
When I wrote this: After my mother received a childish text from her “best friend”.
Dear Immature Adult,
You are the one of the most juvenile people I have ever met. I feel like I have done so much in the name of friendship: I missed school to go to your wedding, I stayed up with you the night before your wedding and convinced you to walk down the aisle, I let you have my mom for a week (even though I really needed her here with me), and I even remembered your birthday.
When have you taken the time out of your life to remember anything that has to do with me? I had major surgery and where were you, not even a phone call to see if I was okay. But yet I still try and keep up a relationship with you to no avail. I contact you repeatedly and you do not respond in any way, shape or form; not to my texts, my Facebook messages, my wall posts, or my emails. What did I do? What did my mother do? I know what she did; she took time out of her life and mine to be there for you when you needed her. What is my crime? I am her daughter. I really needed you. You were like a big sister to me; I thought I could count on you and that you were my friend. But now I see that I was wrong and it is sad that you are not what I thought. I am sorry for your hurt because it must be so great for you, an adult to act this way to me. I hope that you and your husband are happy and have a nice life.
Thanks for being the example of what not to be,
Teen Drama Queen
Love you Mom!
