Thank You Best Friend; And I’m Sorry For What I Have To Do…

Dear best friend, I wish I had listened to you when you said that he is not good, I wish my parents had listened to you when the groom side created a scene on the wedding day for money, I wish we had backed out of the wedding. 

Dear best friend, I wish I had listened to you when you said that he is not good, I wish my parents had listened to you when the groom side created a scene on the wedding day for money, I wish we had backed out of the wedding.

Ever since I can remember, I had several friends, but very few who were close. When you came into my life as my best friend you treated me like a daughter even though you were just 5 years older, raising me, teaching me, and most importantly tolerating all my tantrums.

I guess I never thanked you enough for being there, for making me feel worthy of such a friendship. When I was sick, you brought me food (though it was terrible :-P), but still, it’s the gesture that counts. When I was facing issues at work, you guided me, when I fought with people you helped me calm down and explained my mistakes without making me feel bad about them.

Dear bestfriend, I wish I had listened to you

When my parents were organizing my wedding, you were the first person I approached. I was clueless, unsure what to do or ask the prospective groom, and you responded, “Be yourself!!” when everyone else was telling me to modify my appearance, talk respectfully, and be the perfect bride.

I wish I had listened to you when you said that he is not good, I wish my parents had listened to you when the groom side created a scene on the wedding day for money, I wish we had backed out of the wedding.

I had to travel to his house, knowing that I was about to marry a man who opposed everything I stood for. I was nothing more than a money-making machine for him and his family. Because of his insecurities about me talking to a guy, I gradually began to avoid you after we married. I didn’t comprehend his intentions at the time, and he had already separated me from my family, so I stopped communicating with you, but you continued to check up on me.

Dear best friend, I appologise for not checking up on you

But, like all good things, our friendship also had to come to an end. Your newlywed wife thought I was a detriment to your relationship, and you had no choice except to back her up. I apologise for whatever problems I may have created in your life. The calls were fewer, and I began to feel depressed. The sense of being alone, having a mentally abusive husband who went to great lengths to tear me apart, and then losing you, my one source of support.And then I lost my baby in early pregnancy, that was the last nail in my coffin.

I had no choice but to do it, to get away from it all. I couldn’t tell anyone because you or anyone else would have intervened, but I couldn’t continue going like this. I sent out an apology to everyone and consider this my apology to you. If there is a way to communicate from there, I will let you know. I wish this time I am born as your daughter because I know that you wouldn’t ditch me!
