Dear ex best friend,

Hey, how are you doing? It's been a while since we've talked. Regardless of what you might think, I do care about how you're doing and hope everything's going well. It's hard to think that you can go from being best friends with someone and sharing everything with them, to becoming complete strangers. I've heard of these stories before, but I never thought it would happen to me.

It all happened at the end of high school all because of silly things: boys and pointless drama. We ended up hurting each other at the end of it, and possibly others too. I don't think we both meant for this to happen, it just kind of did.

Now it's two years later and all I can think is how silly the whole situation is. We recently saw each other, but both acted as if we didn't know each other. Like strangers. Why did it have to come to this?

I know we can never be best friends again. Too much damage has been done. But I don't see why people who know so much about each other have to act like strangers and say hurtful things about the other.

The lesson I'd like everyone to grasp is that everyone is going to get into pointless fights. But my hope for everyone else that you can stop the drama before it becomes too extreme. What happened to us at the time seemed like it was the end of the world, but now those problems have no affect on my life.

I hope you're doing well, and I hope one day we'll be able to talk again.
