I tried but now I give up

I've posted before how a best friend and I got in a fight and stopped being friends. Well I saw her posting really depressing things like wanting to die so I asked a mutual friend if she was okay, which apparently pissed her off but I don't get why. Anyway I wrote her myself over a month ago apologizing for my part in the fight things like that, after a month i get a response. It was basically saying how I was messed up and lets put the past behind us but kept throwing what I did in my face, though she messed up too in a big way. Then get told I have to prove myself, and she doesn't care about me. At this time I was trying to grin and bear it because we were best friends for so long, tattoo and everything. Well after asking friends for advice and hearing my boyfriend say that when we weren't friends I wasn't stressed at all and now I am and seeing how my other friends treat me and talk to me when we have an issue I decided that it's best to cut ties. I tried and felt like I let someone I care about put me down just to try to save a friendship. I'm hoping now that I decided we won't be friends any longer that my stress level disappears. My next goal is to head to the tattoo shop and get this fixed.

I'm very sorry. Yes, it sounds that it's best to cut ties. As her message wasn't an apology or anything nice that someone who wants to be friends would write. I am sorry you lost a once bestfriend, i know how that feels. And i hope you can be at peaslce with it now.

so sorry about the friendship, I know it's not easy losing a long time friend over something stupid but it's better to lose one now than later on in life in another way. So don't let it slow you down or get in your way just move on.

I didn't know she got mad at you for showing concern. Who does that? I'm sorry it wound up like this, but I think you did what's best for you. If she wants to leave things in the past, then she shouldn't keep throwing the past in your face. And it still baffles me how she can tell you that she doesn't care, but yet she wants you to "prove yourself" to her. -Smh- You're a good person, Cait, and maybe one day she'll realize that she lost a great friend.
