My Friend has Cancer?! - Part 4

"...And I Really Screwed Up"

You said something you thought would make your friend feel better, but the look on her face says…. No. You want to crawl into a hole. Or blow it off and just spend your time with people whose lives are easier. Don’t. It’s normal to make mistakes. Everyone does, especially when dealing with something as difficult as cancer. Bottom line: Apologize. Ask for forgiveness. Keep showing up, and ask how you can do better. Your friendship is worth it.
