My long time friend is distancing herself from me and I am not sure why

Question - (5 December 2017) 2 Answers - (Newest, 12 December 2017)
A female United States age 22-25, anonymous writes:

I have a friend that ive been close with for years, we told each other everything and did everything together. Shes been a big part of my life but this following year i sense a change... I’ve been so busy with work and school 6 days a week I am about to graduate i am interning at a major hospital and my internship site offered me a position to start working. I feel this year she might have fell a little envious of my hard work and success. I can’t think of any other reason to way she is distancing herself. We used to talk everyday even twice a day, now i will call her and wont answer she will never call me back. And I will ask her to hangout and she’ll tell me she’s with my boyfriend and i will find out she was with a mutual friend. It really hurts my feelings a lot That she would lie to me. She says that she’s just so busy and she doesn’t have time for anything anymore, they say growing up things change and you don’t see friends as frequently. Maybe I made the whole scenario up in my head about her being jealous I’m just trying to make sense of the situation. Can someone give me some insight?

aunt honesty agony auntIf she was a true friend she would not be jealous off your success. It could be she felt you where to busy for her or that you both just grew apart. Yes it is sad but friendships end all the time. Why not write her a message and ask her is everything okay and that you miss her, if she doesn't respond then leave it at that and you will know that you tried.
