It’s done. It’s over. I am betrayed by my friend. Ceili believes others over me. Her lack of trust is her betrayal. It was a lie and the lie destroyed our friendship. Her inability to recognise any responsibility in the breakup just precipitated matters.
I kept her secrets better than she did herself and in memorial of her friendship I will never tell, though I doubt she will extend the same courtesy to me.
Now she talks to me only when she needs to gush about something. I am weary in body and spirit. I will miss her overall but her faults will certainly help me to miss her less.
I have not been perfect and I accept my responsibility in the breakup but it need never have happened. Alas the trust was not enough. She believed a lie spun by others (she will not tell me who). I will not make a scene but will accept and go quietly.
