This might be the episode that was the most personal to ME. Watching how Africa was affected and her feelings made me feel a certain kind of way. Although we aren't in a committed relationship, as my friend how she feels is important to me because I finally realized that her saying she was cool with something and experiencing something were two totally different things.
I also learned inside of friendships there are major gray areas. You have to communicate very clearly to understand each other and grow. When she came to me her approach was aggressive and rude so my response was a reaction to how she delivered it. Everything is about how you communicate, even at your most vulnerable moment. Although I was upset I had to put myself in her shoes. When I saw the tears come down her face it changed my delivery because one thing I hate is to see is a woman cry. At that very moment I knew that I had to relay to her that our friendship was important to me and that I was sorry. My apology came from my heart.
