One of my dear friends has been seeing a guy off and on for over a year. When things were "good" between them, she completely disappeared and spent all her free time with him. I felt left out, but I wanted her to be happy, even if it meant we saw less of each other.
As time went on, he began to change and their relationship went downhill, fast. She would make excuses for his terrible attitude and bad behavior, but I never bought it — he was making her miserable. When she finally confided in me about the troubles they'd been having, I told her the truth about how I feel about him. In an effort to be honest, I took it a little too far and before I knew it, every negative thing I'd ever thought about her boyfriend came blurting out of my mouth. From the look on her face, I could tell that I crossed the line. I immediately retracted, but it was too late — she was hurt and furious with me.
It's been two weeks since and she still, after numerous apologies, wants nothing to do with me. I was just trying to help her see what everyone else sees, so can I be forgiven for speaking the truth?
