"Never judge a book by its cover"

I said mean things, yes. I said mean things and I know I denied them, but I never got to tell my version, of how I felt. I was shot down by your defensive words, so now I will tell my version of the story.
Yes, back in the summer of 2011 when you brought your boyfriend over to my house, I was not impressed. I can’t let you deny that, because that is a fact. But his sarcastic remarks and the way he treated you I noticed was not right. You deserve better than that and that’s what I saw.
Then when you asked me to come with you and told me what he had done with you, all I could think was, “How could you let him do this to you?” But all I felt like I could do after you told me that was slap a smile on my face and act like I wasn’t hurt, so you wouldn’t get upset. You were so happy, and I didn’t want to ruin that.
Then, in October when you asked me what you thought of your boyfriend, I told you those things to keep you from getting hurt. I know you were upset, but I’ve been hurt before, and I didn’t want to see you get hurt. But you kept asking and I guess I got harsher, and harsher, but I said all that to be a good friend, to protect you from the pain and heartbreak that I have gone through. I hope we can still be friends from the apology.

Always think before you judge someone. One mean comment can really change everything and you can never take back what you've said. Once it's been said, it's gone.
