I can hear how much this conversation has impacted your wellbeing these last few days- I want you to know that you are not alone and I know there are so many people who can relate to regretting something said in a social context (including me!)
It sounds like this is something you have been thinking about a lot since the conversation. Mistakes happen in conversations and I know from our conversations how much thought you put into your social interactions. I really hope that you are both able to work through this
You have mentioned a few different ways you might address this issue. What do you think is the best approach? Have you spoken to your friend about how she feels? Do you feel like talking to them and apologising would be helpful?
If you would like to have a chat about how you can start a conversation with your friend, we are happy to work through it with you
