    It has been 1 year and 7 months since we stopped our correspondence and went our separate ways. I don’t want to contact you directly since I don’t think you would appreciate it. So, I’ll put it here in the hope that maybe one day you will see it.

    We were friends. You opened up to me about your situation. You asked me to keep it between just us. I have kept my promise. I am sorry for how things ended. You trusted me and I made you question that trust when I revealed certain things to you. I put you in an awkward situation when you needed support. I don’t blame you for cutting me off. I know that it’s because you are a good person. I also want you to know that our friendship was so important to me and a breath of fresh air during my own dark times. I will always hold you in the highest regard. I have made sense of my feelings and am on the right path now. I wish that somehow we could be friends and talk again, but I know there is no regaining your trust. Please be well.

      Old friend,
      You never helped me make sense of my feelings. I left for the reason you mentioned and a whole bunch of things you don’t know from the situation you put me in. We will never speak again. I wish I could be well but remember that situation you put me in? It had consequences.

      In all honesty, I believe you should send this exact message to your person. It’s genuine and honest, and I think they would appreciate it and it would be a good staring point to work towards the friendship you once shared. But in order for that to happen they need to hear this from you. It sounds like a very special connection you two have and maybe they need to hear this and clearly you need them to hear this. It’s an honest apology and I think it will do wonders if you send this exact post of what you wrote above.

        Thanks, but she would never start things back up again. As she put it, it’s “too risky”. She doesn’t want to cause me problems and when we stopped talking, it’s because I conveyed to her that there might be problems. But I’ve made sense out of things and know what was at the root of my concern. I acted hastily with her and drove her away. She’s gone forever now and I miss her friendship.

      If you really cared about your old friend.

      But you don’t really, so you?
