Dear ex-friend who betrayed me

Dear Non-friend,

While I am sure you do have so much more to share with me in life, I am no longer interested. The fact that you do not seem to understand how your betrayal affects me and that I now need space is more reason to avoid you.

You are expecting forgiveness so easily and without any display of remorse? This is yet another red flag for me.

Do you get it? My needs have not registered with you and you have not been my friend. A friend would understand where I’m coming from and give me space to heal because that’s what I need. I’ve made that clear. Still, you’re giving me pressure to reconcile.

I enjoy forgiving friends who make mistakes. Nobody’s perfect. I just didn’t realize you weren’t a friend.
