I feel so much better...

For a week now I've been harboring some anger toward a friend because of an incindent that took place a week ago.  It hurt me (not physically) and shattered me for days.  I was truly angry and hurt.

I had nearly decided that because I had not addressed it immediately that I was going to let it go, but I would not let it happen again.  However, an opportunity presented itself a few days ago and I tried to address the issue.  It was blown off and nothing was resolved.  I made up my mind that I would not bring it up again, but as I said, I would not let it happen again.

Well, I was asked about it it this evening.  I told my friend that I was not going to bring it up again, but they stopped me and apologized profusely.  They told me that looking back now they realized how horrible they were.  I thanked my friend for the apology and told them that their apology meant a great deal to me.  It was all that I had been wanting for a week. 

Because of this incident and the way things unfolded throughout the week I was truly afraid that our friendship was doomed.  I was afraid of what I thought was a severe change in my friend.  After our discussion this evening, I realize this is not the case and our friendship is fine.

I really need to learn how to stand up to people.  However, given what I learned this evening, I needed to just let this lie for a few days.  Standing up to the friend at the time would not have accomplished anything.
