| | Abusive Friend
I have been trapped in an abusive friendship for eight years. "Cassie" verbally, emotionally, and sometimes even physically abuses me. She considers me her "best friend", but she cusses me out once a month or more (considering that we only connect every few days online, that is a lot). I am in the process of distancing myself from her.
There's just one problem: my graduation party is coming up soon. I don't want to invite her because, honestly, she just makes me sick. The last thing she told me was harsh and involved swear words. I'm taking that as a green light to abandon ship. Anyway, if I invite her, it will just make disconnecting more difficult. If I tell her there is no graduation party, it won't be realistic. Plus, we have mutual friends that will inevitably talk about it. If she finds out that I left her out, she will drag her family and all of my friends into this.
Do I invite her and have a miserable party or do I exclude her and face her wrath?
