Me and this women have been friends for 18 long years, we have known each-other since we were kids, we are both in our early 30's now and gave dating a shot, well after the second breakup, I screwed up bad... she did wright me a 3 page long hand wrote brake up letter, but I screwed up and reacted out of anger... blowing up her phone, storming her apartment, acting like a dam fool. But the root of that wasn't the break up letter, or the fact she broke up with me, but I had four of my best friends die just before we started dating, and my brain went into panic mode... now she won't even pick up the phone, blocked me on her accounts, and wants nothing to do with me, I do talk to the rest of her family and we have lots of mutual friends... I am seeking counseling, and trying to correct everything she wrote in the break up letter, but my question is, is that friendship gone forever and if not, how long will it take her to forgive me? thanks.

I'd give her time for sure. Whether it is over for good is up to her. Maybe after several months, write her a letter saying what you have been working on, you are very sorry and you hope she can forgive you. Tell her that you feel that you were wrong with how you acted. Either mail it to her house or give it to a trusted mutual friend to give to her, or as an even better idea, send it to her with a bunch of flowers but after that do not pursue it any more.1
