I have a lovely friend to whom I said in pretty overwhelming detail how he should grow up and discover life as a mature adult. I did not intend to hurt him, but I did make him pay attention to my words telling him that friends should feel prompted to tell friends when a change of actions was indicated. this was apparently a very bad thing on my part, as indicated by 8 days of silence and avoidance, with this being the ninth.
so sad and broken-spirited, realizing I had obviously hurt this individual, I wrote to him to apologize and realized it was possible he would not forgive me, as that would be up to him. but I absolutely had to apologize and wished him and his future life the very best possible.
