Low and behold, Blue Sky responded to my communications that called out her behavior and shut the door to interaction with her. She had more than two weeks to respond to my "let's balance this" texts and email. Nothin'. Then when I said, "Goodbye, fair weather friend," and "has it occurred to you that you treat people the same as the people in school treated you -- disrespectfully," she texts me and responds to my email.
I didn't read many of her words because I'd already decided to close the connection between us. Well, I saw the first sentence of one of her texts. It said something like, "I don't expect you to talk with me. I told you..." I got to that second line, and I realized, "I don't care what she expects anymore. She treated me unfairly and then waited until I said 'No more' and then responded to me."
Blue Sky tried to play an emotion game with me, and I declined. Others might say she likes drama. I like drama, too, and I value my friendships to the extent that I will talk through disagreements with my friends. So maybe we choose to not be friends. We can talk with each other about it and come to an amicable understanding. Instead of that route, Blue Sky chose to cut me out of her life. Then, when I tried to talk with her about it, she ignored me. Only when I spoke up for myself and declared my own values did she respond. No thanks, Blue Sky. I'm not interested in your games. I liked you, and then you decided that ending us was more important to you than treating us with respect. I deserve friends who put the relationship first and treat the emotions of all parties with respect.
Well hello there.
