    Ok so I cancelled on them to go out with another friend. later I found he got hurt and I asked how and learn and I was horrifed to learn that info because if I had stuck to the first plans they would have been with me and not where it happened. I went to see him today and I explained and he said it was fine because I was with family (I lied so I could get out it). now I feel guilty because he forgave me because of a lie and because he go hurt because of me?

    Should I feel like this?

    Nah dont worry about it. It isnt your fault he got hurt, he got hurt because of chance.

    It's natural to feel guilty (especially when you lied!) but at the end of the day it's not like you saw this coming, so you'll get over it.

    There's no way you should feel guilty over the fact that he got hurt, you bailed on him but that doesn't make you responsible for his whereabouts and resulting injury. You have some justification for feeling guilty about your lie; however, it's better just to leave it - he's only going to feel worse if you tell him you made up an excuse because you didn't want to see him. Just go and see him often and make sure he's ok

    For all you know it could have prevented something much worse from happening. Don't worry too much 'cause you'll never know what would have been.

    It was down to chance, get over it. It could have happened anyway, accidents happen all the time.
