I need to give you a little bit of background before I jump into this story.
Once upon a time I had a BFF (we'll call her Mary Lou Sue Who or Mary for short) whom I could talk to for hours and hours and hours and never run out of things to say. We just got each other. But we were so much alike, that we did bump heads every now again, but nothing serious. Eventually we became roommates and it was so much fun. At the beginning. Then started to drive each other nuts and would get angry with one another for using the last bit of shampoo or toothpaste or something else really stupid.
Mary eventually moved out and we completely stopped talking. I really can't even remember now what the actual demise was.
So I keep having this reoccurring dream that I ask her to be my bridesmaid. I haven't talked to her in 2 years. Nothing. We went from hanging out every day to just nothing.
Well finally, after having the dream about 5 times, I decided to email her. I was actually nervous writing the email because I wasn't sure how she'd react or if she'd even bother to email me back. I said something along the lines of, "I know I'm probably the last person you expected to hear from, but I just wanna say that I am sorry for everything that happened that lead us to not speaking and that I hope life is treating you well."
Ten minutes later, I get an email back. She was soooo excited to hear from me and said that she was debating on whether or not to congratulate me on my engagement (small town, remember? news travels) and that she missed talking to me and that she was sorry too.
Since then we've emailed each other like 10 times. Then we exchanged numbers with promises to call.
It feels good. Even if we never actually become BFFs again and start hanging out everyday, I feel very happy that we are on good terms.
