    My best friend and I used to be inseparable.

    Freshman and sophomore year, we were practically connected at the hip. At some point this year she changed, and for reasons unknown to me, I think she hates me. I don't want to go into senior year without her. I've tried to address this and she makes up fake apologies then...

    I Thought They Knew Better...

    I'm not mad. Just shaking my head in utter disappointment as I figured they knew better than to be swayed by people who obviously have some sort of unsavory agenda.  Just thought they were smarter than that. O-Well, I wish them well despite it all.

    A Simple Truth

    My story is simple to understand. I was betrayed. This isn't a sob story, but a simple truth that I've come to know through experience. There is an invisible line that has to be drawn when you befriend some one, one that dictate's how far a friend would go for that other friend...

    This experience would be more accurate

    if it were "I've been betrayed by EX-friends" A person who betrays your trust is no friend at all.

    Sometimes people lie to you because they don't know how to be honest with you, or more importantly themselves. But, you can't lie to someone who doesn't believe you. So, I guess I don't really consider it true betrayal because I knew all along... So if you are reading this...
