I kept a secret from my best friend. It was very hard to do. And it hurt her feelings when she found out. It was not a big dark dirty secret. It was just something that I know that she would have liked to have known. And I didn't tell her. I didn't tell anyone. Only Jennifer knew my secret. Because it is her secret, too.
But now, my best friend feels decieved and hurt and was quite mad at me. And I, in turn, feel bad. I know...I should feel bad. This is why we don't keep secrets. Because they have a way of leaking out, right?
Things just changed. And I didn't want to talk about it. An opportunity opened up and we decided to take it. I didn't mean to hurt her feelings. And she assures me that she won't be mad forever. But, it still upsets me. I don't think that we have been mad at each other since middle school. And then...we weren't best friends and it was over something silly like her getting a higher chair in a playoff in concert band or something. I don't even remember the circumstances. I don't have any other friend in my life that I can say that I have never gotten into an argument or gone through a period of time in our relationship where we weren't talking.
Just know that I am sorry I hurt you. I didn't mean to.
