Relationship Issues with Best friend
In the last two weeks our therapists have answered 211 queries related to mental health.

Hi. I have feelings for my best friend for the past 2 years. We used to talk everyday for hours, and we still do, not so much cus of work. Everything was going alright until she once mentioned that she has feelings for me, but she couldn't move forward with it cus she was going through a break up of 7 years. I understood her and didn't say anything back at the time. But as someone who has never been in a relationship or has never been told by someone that they had feelings for me, I took it in the wrong sense, and it has been bothering me since that day. I have said to her mutliple times that i can't see her as just a friend anymore and she said she is sorry for saying it lout loud and for ruining our relation as best friends. It's not her fault at all, but I cant seem to move forward as she's on my mind 24x7. I love her as a friend and maybe more than just a friend, but I can't keep this up. I took a break from her yesterday, 10 days for now for a start. Is there anyone who can help?
