My best friend of over 10 years replaced me.
I know I shouldn’t be mad. They text me and try to include me, but their schedules match up and mine doesn’t. I can’t always come, and it’s not her fault.
And it’s not her fault they’re so similar. They have the same hobbies and values, and band together to judge the ways I’m different. She was always judgmental, but it’s different now that she has backup. It feels like they’re pushing me away, but I know they don’t mean to.
I feel guilty for being jealous, but it still feels like I’ve been punched in the gut. I have other friends, but they all already have best friends of their own. I feel like the last single girl.
