Hi there Boggle, I'm Ralph from Daytona, FL. I have screwed up big time, I have turned people who were my friends away from me because of my behaviors. I regret the way I acted, but it's too late, I feel like they all hate me. I've never felt so hopeless. :( Are there any words AT ALL that you could give me to perk myself up and give me hope? Please write back if so. Take your time, being an owl is hard, I'm sure, but I look forward to your response.

I’m sorry, but there’s nothing I can say to make this feeling go away. Regret is just a part of having a conscience. Although it doesn’t really help to hear it, I am proud of you.

I am sure you have apologized and tried to make amends. It sounds like you are scared that you won’t be able to fix the trust you broke no matter what you do. That is a miserable feeling, and I am very sad to say that it might be true.

I know you are a good person, and I know you deserve to have friends. But it is possible that you won’t get to have THESE friends anymore. Maybe some or even all of them will forgive you, with time. But if you are already doing everything you can to make things right, then whether or not they let you back into their lives is up to them. The sad fact is that you don’t always get to fix the things you break.

You will know lots of people in your life, and have lots of chances to get things right. Whether these friends forgive you or not, I know you will have people in your life who love you again. And I know that you will treat them with more care. I don’t know how to make you feel better right now, and I don’t even know if that’s wise. But if this feeling weren’t so awful, it wouldn’t be strong enough to make us change.

Take care of yourself out there.

Boggle’s ideas are not always terribly sophisticated. But I’ll back this one.

Thank you so much for all your kind words! Boggle is back this week, and I am feeling better!
Relationships are hard, whether you’re talking about romantic relationships or friendships. They’re even harder if you come from a background with mental illness, family dysfunction, or if you just feel drawn to someone you’re not ‘supposed to’ want to be with. People feel ashamed of who they are, what they want, and where they came from. And sometimes, there really are legitimate obstacles to overcome! But please believe that you deserve to overcome them. You deserve to be happy. You deserve to be more than, maybe, other people in your life want or expect you to be. And I believe you can.

I do not like telling anyone that they are being unkind! And I’m sure this won’t be a pleasant thing to read. But even if your friend WERE overplaying their suffering—which is not a nice thing at all to assume about someone you care about!—would it be your place to correct them? You’re their friend, not their therapist! I believe you can be a better friend than this!

How would you want someone to reach out to you? What might be the best way to get through?

Is there some reason you can’t do that, too?
