My Unbiological Sister and Ex Friend

There's a point when you've known someone for so long and have become so close to them that they cease to be merely a friend and become family.

I had a friend like this. We were friends for fifteen years, since before either of us started school. We used to joke about being sisters, but at some point it no longer became a joke.  One year ago she told me she didn't want to be friends with me, giving me some bs reason, made me feel worthless as a person and broke my heart.  She meant the world to me. 

I hated her for a very long time, but despite all that I can never stop loving her.  Just because you're unhappy with your family doesn't mean they stop being your family, and its no different with us.  Somewhere down the road we really did become sisters, and I will always lover her as a sister.  Even though I haven't spoken to her in a very long time, I would rush quickly to the hospital if she ever got hurt.  If I were to get married I would send her a wedding invitation because its bad form to not invite all your family to such an event, even if I am still a little sore about what she did.  

I don't think I could ever trust her to be a friend again, but she will always be my sister.  I will always love her, and in an extreme situation, if she ever needs me I'll be there for her, but only if thats what she needs.  For now, I'm just going to have to move on with my life without her in it.

thank you. I hope we can have some kind of relationship again someday, but I don't think it'll be like the friendship we had before. Too much trust has been lost for that.

Oh your a wonderful person I hope that you two can mend your relationship, but good for you for being the bigger person and still caring for her so deeply
