To my friend;
I have been learning a lot lately about unconditional love and sensitivity to other’s needs and emotions.
I would like to apologize to you for my misbehavior. When you reached out to others and myself about the bombing of your brothers and sisters, I was insensitive. I should have realized that you were crying out for help, compassion, and friendship.
I am truly sorry for not recognizing your need and I understand why you were so upset with me.
I’ve learned that love, in relationships (including friendships), needs to be unconditional. That doesn’t mean without boundaries, but it needs to be lasting and eternal. I have violated that unconditional love in my friendship with you twice now.
You are one of the most passionate and fiery people I know. It is this passion and fire which I love so much about you, but which has also caused me to react poorly in your most desperate times of need. You are kind and honest. You give fully of yourself even when it is to your detriment. You continue to try even when others tell you to give up. You have survived so much pain and have learned and grown from each of these experiences. You are always willing to lend a helping hand. And you laugh and smile readily, even through your pain. You are gift to this planet, to your friends, and to your family. You are intelligent and humble. You are always willing to try new things.
I don’t know if you will be able to forgive me for my insensitivity, but I did want you to know that in spite of our arguments and differences I do love you.
I sincerely hope that you are well and happy.
