Well, my friend sent me a message a little over a week ago apologizing for being a jerk, and he hated that things weren't so great with us right now, and that he'd like to continue being my friend even if we "never see each other again." I wasn't going to respond, because I had no idea what the right thing to say was at that point (and I had to get to work), but then he followed up with the "You don't have to respond if you don't want to, BUT..." So, I responded, and said that I appreciate it. He said I was welcome to say hi anytime, and I said thank you. He told me to take care; I told him to have a good day.
I still haven't talked with him since, although I feel like I should, as he's been leaving up status messages on IM apologizing and asking me to please talk to him again soon. I'm SO glad all of his friends can see that. Really. It's magical.
But the main reasons I haven't talked to him are a) I have absolutely no idea what to say, b) I don't think I have the energy to deal with his daily inner melodramas, c) I have friggin' midterms this week, and d) I'm very cautious about talking to people who have made me cry. But I appreciate the effort he's put in, even if he's being more public about things than I would like (but that's just his way). But what the hell do I even say at this point? I got nothin'.
