Let it Be or Text Him? - July 23rd 2012, 07:18 PM

Ok.. so I posted about my (former) best friend the other day. Well, since then, I know he's talked to my mother via Facebook. My mom let me log in her account and read what he said. Well... I know that he's misinterpreted a few things I've said/done, and I'm tempted to send a text to him clarifying things. Also, I know that I said some things that were way out of proportion, and I wanted to apologize for those.

I don't know if I should bother texting him now, or let things be until we eventually talk again. I know we'll eventually talk again in some way, shape, or form, but I don't know when that'll be. I've handled the situation pretty immaturely, and I want to know what the right thing to do is. :/ I don't wanna complicate things any further, but it's eating at me, knowing that he's totally misunderstood some things I said.

Talk to him; but I wouldn't do it via text. Maybe phone call, or face to face? When you text people 'I'm sorry' or try to clarify things, it sometimes devalues what you are trying to say (remember hes looking at his phone that says you are sorry, but its not like he can actually SEE that you are sorry). So your best bet is to tell him what you want to tell him in a calm voice (via phone or face to face which is recommended), and you should find that things go down a positive road.


Best wishes,
Chris

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...

Well, id say you should talk to him. Clear some things up. Sometimes time just makes it worse.

Talk to him!! They only way to clear things up is to talk!!! Don't wait because time can only make the misunderstanding deeper.

I couldn't get on TH all last night (it was down?). So I ended up texting him, anyway. To my surprise, he ended up texting back and unblocked me on Facebook! We texted a little last night, and he asked if I wanted to do homework with him... it sounds like things are going to shape up between us, but we'll see what happens later. (:
