I met Jess through mutual friends. Our friendship grew slowly over a few years — a text here and there, hanging out and chatting at parties, then the odd lunch.

I was in pieces. Although I was well into my twenties, the idea that my home life was so unstable and my parents were scrambling around trying to survive was deeply upsetting. I rarely made it through a day without escaping to the office toilet to cry. Jess was one of the first people I opened up to about all this.

I was in the middle of a meeting at work a few months later, when my phone flashed. I was shocked. And that was it — our friendship was over in three WhatsApp messages. After the anger faded and my family situation improved, I started to wonder how she was.

Well, I have. We sat down and I focused on the drinks order to hide my nerves.
After a few awkward minutes of getting used to sharing the same air again, we started to catch up on the last three years.

I felt terrible. She confessed fext she too had felt drained at times by our friendship and apologised too for not realising how distressed I was. But in reality, I knew this was probably the last time I would see her.
