Moving On Together

Dr. Laura:

A friend and I had a falling out, and we just stopped talking to each other.  I had recently lost my mother, and a year later, her father passed away.

Once I learned that she lost her father, I called her.  I told her I didn't care anymore what happened between the two of us, I didn't need an apology and I wasn't going to give one either.  All I knew was that she was going through something difficult and I wanted to be there for her.  The old argument was no longer important, because it just didn't matter anymore.

Since that time, we have laughed, cried and have rekindled the friendship that we almost let completely die.  I'm happy we're able to move forward together again as friends.
