In many friend groups of three, it's common for two people to be closer, which can sometimes lead to uncomfortable situations. This happened to Reddit user u/Necessary-Wall-6446, a 23-year-old woman who shared a heartbreaking story about her two best friends betraying her behind her back. She questioned if she was wrong for confronting them about their behavior.

"I have two friends: Gaby and Shelly. We were roommates in college and stayed in the same city after graduation. While the three of us are close, I've always known that Gaby and Shelly are the closest. They have a really sweet friendship," the woman explained. Shelly is getting married. Gaby is her maid of honor, while the woman is one of the bridesmaids. "Over the weekend, I went with Shelly so she could look at wedding dresses. Gaby was supposed to come with us but got called into work last minute. I helped Shelly pick out some dresses, then she went with the consultant to try them on," the woman recounted.

Everything was fine until Shelly handed the woman her phone to take photos and videos of the dresses to share with her mom and Gaby. "I was getting the camera ready when a text from Gaby came through. I didn't mean to click on it and was instantly going to click back out when I saw one of my Instagram pictures in their private chat from earlier that morning. Both were making fun of me for the face I was making and my outfit choice," the woman wrote, pointing out that the jokes didn't seem good-natured. "I admit, curiosity got the best of me, so I searched my name in the chat. I found multiple pictures that I, my boyfriend or my mom have posted of myself, absolutely ripping them to shreds," she continued.

The duo made fun of every picture and how the woman talked, walked and ate in their private chat. There were an entire year's worth of messages in the chat. "My heart broke. It all felt so juvenile and high school. While we all joke around, I would never do this to them nor have they ever even tried to instigate these types of conversations with me about the other one on one," the woman expressed. She was heartbroken as she had been bullied in middle school and high school and the chats triggered those memories for her. "I put the phone in Shelly's purse and brought it to another employee, telling her to tell Shelly that I had to go. I drove home and had a long cry," the woman continued. 

Shelly texted her, asking the reason behind her sudden disappearance. "She was understandably confused and hurt that I left. I told her what I found, explaining that I only looked further because of the initial text I accidentally saw," the woman revealed. Shelly got really mad at her for going through her private messages and said it was "none of her business." The woman added, "She also told me I shouldn't have left the store without saying anything. I said I didn't want to make a scene but also knew I couldn't fake being happy for her."

"Shelly told me the texts were 'all in good fun' and clearly, she loves me because I'm going to be her bridesmaid. She added that I'm only hurt because I chose to read all those texts. Later on, Gaby called to tell me that I invaded Shelly's privacy and hurt her by walking out," the friend stated. Although, her mom and boyfriend were on her side in this. She wanted an unbiased opinion about the situation, so she asked people on Reddit. People took to the comments to support her and tell her that she should drop out of the wedding altogether.

u/hereforyounot wrote, "If I was in your place, I think I'd drop out of being in the wedding. It's one thing to jokingly make fun of someone one time, but it seems like they have done this to you a bunch of times. And it doesn't seem like it was light-hearted. If I were you, I wouldn't feel bad about looking through those messages at all. She handed her phone to you and felt like fate took the opportunity to expose them to you for who they are." u/Straight-Ad-160 pointed out, "Notice also how they're not apologizing to her for what they said, but are attacking her for looking at the texts."
