(Cooperstown, NY USA)
I became friends with my boyfriend's distant cousin because she is dating a (sort of) friend of his. We became friends also because we had one thing in common and that is scrapbooking. Her and I got together about once or twice a week and hung out with our scrapbook stuff and shared a bunch of information. Most of the time over that 6-month period - she unloaded on me about what a piece of shit her boyfriend is, was, about all her mother and her issues. I was a good friend, listened for almost that whole time - only talking a bit about my own issues and problems. Then the day came where I voiced my opinion based on all that she told me, I heard and witnessed. It was via a text message. Then she got pissed - told me I was entitled to my opinion. I did not hear from her for a few days which was unusual because we talked, texted, or IM'd almost every day a lot. I sent her an email apologizing for what I said, not making excuses for what I said, but explained my reasons for what I said.
She responded and only took it negatively instead of a sincere apology. I responded back and apologized almost all the way through it again - she has not spoke to me since - it's been almost a month.
Yesterday I sent her some pictures via email of her child and her (an event we went to together as friends). She did not even respond with a thank you. Today I text her and asked her if she was STILL mad at me? :( and she never responded at all.
What can I do? I have apologized profusely over and over and over. She is holding a grudge and it's not like I killed anyone or harmed anyone in any way at all. I just stated my opinion on her situation.
She has stated her opinion to me about something before and I did not get offended, hold a grudge, get mad or anything.
HELP!!!! It is really bothering me that she is so upset and not talking to me for what seems like not that big of a deal.
