i once had a friend call me crying because I didn't invite her to a one-on-one hang I was having with another one of my friends. She told me I was a bad friend and instead of standing up for myself, I ALSO started crying and apologized to her. If it were now, I would have thrown a "sorry that your feelings are hurt but...I'm not sorry for having other friends." I don't want anything to feel bad but I regret that I let it make ME feel bad more than anything. It was sadly the inciting incident of us not being as close anymore and we've since sort of drifted apart.
