I decided to keep our appointment.
Well, I have. I updated her on my new job, the highs and lows of online dating and saving for a deposit.
Even the ones where, in theory, she was trying to help me work through my family worries. I wrote each challenge down and devoted at least one week to following through on them. Slowly, I stopped texting her back — once, twice, three times. I was in the middle of a meeting at work a few months later, when my phone flashed.
But with people increasingly moving their communication from IRL to behind a screen, this cold behaviour has become fairly common. I knew, deep down, that I owed her an apology. And that was it — our friendship was over in three WhatsApp messages.
She advised me to wating that person a message on Instagram asking them to get coffee. Bayard was patient and listened to me vent. I must be a horrible person.
Those with social anxiety struggle because ne are in their head and second guess themselves. :. Looking back, I can see now the task of figuring out who you are in your mid-twenties can be stressful and daunting. We sat down and I focused on the drinks order to hide my nerves.
At first, she was very supportive, calling me regularly to see how I was. After the anger faded and my family situation improved, I started to wonder how she was.
I began to see her as spoilt and wanitng - she had a lovely new boyfriend, a decent job and, thanks to her parents buying her a flat, a free place to live - what more could she possibly want? He lost his job and my family fell into severe debt. I was shocked. But after a few weeks that wore off and suddenly I found myself thinking how self-involved she seemed.
It started to drive a wedge between us.
She confessed that she too had felt drained at times by our friendship and apologised too for not realising how distressed I was. At first I just put it down to the give and take of friendship. I knew it was up aa me to get things started. All my friends are married with.
I gave her a hug and, finally, said a proper goodbye. Every conversation.
Most people, I thought, make friends without a strategy or game plan. With everything else going on, not speaking was just easier.
I was in pieces. Who are the people you sometimes see at the same parties and share mutual friends, but never have one-on-one conversations?
The trust in our friendship was gone - on both sides. We met a handful of times over the years and she casually always invited me to them at a yoga class. After a few awkward minutes of getting used to sharing the same air again, we started to catch up on the last three years.
I did exactly what Bayard advised and messaged her on Instagram. BBC Three It was when my father got into financial trouble that things started to change. But we both knew it would never happen. I found myself exhausted by the idea of seeing her and dodging meet-ups, blaming work and my sister coming to town.
My parents' marriage became strained and, in the end, they split up. I felt ready to hear what Bayard had in store for me and was happy to know that there were only three challenges she wanted me to tackle over the next month to help me make friends. Worse, it just felt like every time I turned to her for support, it just wasn't there. I felt terrible. I realised she just enjoyed moaning about them to anyone who would listen.
Our friendship grew slowly over a few years — a text here and there, hanging out and chatting at parties, then the odd lunch. We were strangers and friends, at the same time.
To paraphrase Maya Angelou, people might forget what you said and did but people will never forget how you made them feel — and I had made her feel awful. I rarely made it through a day without escaping to the office toilet to cry.
Jess was one of the first people I opened up to about all this. Although I was well into my twenties, the idea that my home life was so unstable and my parents were scrambling around trying to survive was deeply upsetting. The first thing Bayard advised me to do was take inventory of people I know and who they know. When she went through a bad break-up we ended up spending more and more time together.
