Friends can drift apart or stop seeing each others as often as they like, but this woman was left confused after her close friend sent her a text saying that she wanted her to be cut out of her life. Then she doubled down and wrote an entire essay about her. “issues”With her.
The anonymous Reddit post by the woman of 27 stated that she felt like her friendship with 32-year-old woman was slipping away for a while. But, she thought they would still be friends. “slowly go their separate ways” over time.
Three days later, after they had been chatting and even discussing the woman’s wedding plans, she received a WhatsApp from her friend. She said she was happy to be together. “didn’t want to be friends anymore”And she wouldn’t be going to her wedding.

“A little background: Although I knew that our friendship was ending, I assumed we would eventually separate. I visited her house many times over the years to comfort her about her past. Contrary to this, my parents had three cancer diagnoses in the past year and my sister passed away. She was not interested in talking about it and would just change the subject.
“Anyway, this all happened three days after coming to my apartment, laughing, chatting, and exchanging gifts and books. When she was at my house, the only moment that seemed to upset her is when I asked her if she wanted to help organise my bachelorette party.
“She claimed she didn’t think she would do a good job. I replied that I didn’t care about it and wasn’t sure if this was what I wanted. She was a little hesitant, but she did not say ‘no’. This could have been picked up by me, but it is also something I believe in.
“So a few days later I get this long text saying she didn’t want to be my friend anymore or come to my wedding. I was obviously upset because any rejection feels like garbage, and I tried to call her to discuss it but she wouldn’t pick up.
“She said we should take time to ‘let it sink in’. I was still upset but just decided to give her some time. After a day or two, I realised that anyone who would act like she did with no explanation wasn’t someone I wanted to be friends with anyway.”
Just when she thought she would never hear anything from her friend, she received another WhatsApp message a few weeks later. This time she explained that her friend had passed away. “written an essay”That list included all of the women’s faults.
The woman refused to read the book, so her friend suggested she “wouldn’t grow”As a person, if she didn’t accept criticism.
She continued: “Five days later, she messages to say she has written an ‘essay’ on ‘all her issues with me’ that I ‘won’t like’. She also said that it is too big to send by WhatsApp, so she will email it to me. This was accompanied by a lot of smiley emojis and friendly exclamation marks.
“I told her to not send me the essay as I would not read it and that I didn’t want to have anything to do anymore with her. I also blocked her on Whatsapp. I received texts from her telling me that I would not grow if this essay was not read and that I was selfish. I blocked her on all matters.”
Commenters on the Reddit post were equally baffled by the friend’s actions, as many stated she was being “Dramatic” by writing long essays and text messages just to “Break up” her friendship.
One person said: “I am not the problem by the fact that they feel it is appropriate to send you an essay listing all their problems with you.”
While another wrote: “Friends don’t need to be in a relationship with lengthy essays or dramatic texts messages. They can stop hanging out and just end the friendship. If she is looking for drama, she can watch Netflix or other streaming services.”
