Some time ago a person I used to be close to just stopped having anything to do with me, without anything happening that I know of and no explanation.
I wrote to them and asked why and offered to apologize for anything I might have done to offend them, but they didn’t answer me. I have asked friends and family members if they know what the problem is and if not, to try to find out, but none of them want to get involved.
Queenie, I’ve given up on trying to make whatever it is right, but I would still like to find out what the problem is.—Sad former friend
Dear Former friend,
This kind of thing does happen, and there is not much you can do about it. This person may think telling you what is the matter would just make things worse, or they may think you can somehow read their mind and should know without getting any explanation.
There is not really anything you can do about it but just try to accept it and get on with your life.
