Today, I upset my good friend, Cindy because of a disagreement between us. I always keep quiet when my friends get angry because I think it’s a good way to help everyone calm down. What I didn’t know, however, is that this hurts my friends’ feelings. I made Cindy angry because I forgot to buy something for her. I thought she was angry so kept quiet. But she was more than a little angry – she was furious! She told me that I keep quiet every time I make a mistake. This behavior shows that I don’t care about my friends or value their friendships. This was the key point that hurt Cindy’s feelings.
I’m very disappointed about my attitude; I didn’t realize that I hurt Cindy’s feelings when I keep quiet. If she hadn’t told me that I think I would never have known what was wrong with me. I’m very grateful for Cindy’s honesty in telling me about my problem. I must change my behavior or face losing my good friends.
