Default I am a terrible friend

A former worker of mine wanted to meet up with me in the evening and I didn’t show up. Right now, I just realized that I miss read the text. I sent him a text message saying how terrible I feel about missing the appointment with him.

It's probably normal to feel a little guilty when something like this happens, but calling yourself a terrible friend is taking it a little too far. It was a simple misunderstanding. This isn't really something big enough to tarnish a friendship, I think. Things should be fine.

I've done that before. For me, I wasn't used to people wanting to spend time with me, so I just didn't plan accordingly. I got in the habit of being alone that when an opportunity for friendship came up, I felt like I messed it up.

I don't think you're a bad friend. It just takes practice learning how to make time for new friends when you're used to not considering more than a few people. I had to learn to set energy aside for outings, and I'm still working on that. I want to be better friend, but the people who care about me, understand this. They don't judge me.

Just explain it to him that you honestly forgot. You sincerely apologize, and hopefully he will understand too.

Good to hear it turned out ok. You seem quite nice to me and by no means terrible in any way.
