So I'm being harassed by my (recently)ex-bestfriend, for confessing to her that I am an atheist. I explained to her very respectfully that not everyone has a religion, and that we should just respect each other. But unfortunately she did not take it well... She calls me names, told me I'm still young (bish I'm literally older than her), and tells me that I was born Muslim, and insists I am not an atheist.
I was being understanding, we live in a Muslim resided place, and she probably has never thought the possibility of someone who does not follow any religion. I WAS trying to be understanding but she started calling me names. I couldn't accept that. What did I do to deserve to be called those? Just because we have different beliefs? Just because she can't understand that not everyone is/should be the same? Why?
She's probably disgusted and disappointed at me. Her own bestfriend, not believing in Allah. Well I don't really care. She's immature and close-minded, unfortunately I can't do anything about that. I should just ignore it. I should but... those names she called me... I can't help but think about it over and over again. I can't help overthinking. Even though I did nothing wrong. Even though I should keep my head high since I know that she's the one in the wrong, and she's the one being immature. But I just can't help it and it's stressing me out...

Personally, I don't believe in any sort of God and that if any of them are actually real then they're higher lifeforms and don't give a fuck whether any of us believe in them or not. No eternal damnation or other highly unreasonable punishment, they simply wouldn't care.
Your friend treating you badly like that is all on them, not your fault.

They desire to deceive Allah and those who believe, and they deceive only themselves and they do not perceive.
“O you who have believed, let not a people ridicule [another] people; perhaps they may be better than them; nor let women ridicule [other] women; perhaps they may be better than them. And do not insult one another and do not call each other by [offensive] nicknames. Wretched is the name [i.e., mention] of disobedience after [one's] faith. And whoever does not repent - then it is those who are the wrongdoers.”
“… if you judge between people, to do so with justice”
“ So, you who believe, be careful when you go to fight in God’s way, and do not say to someone who offers you a greeting of peace, ‘You are not a believer,’ out of desire for the chance gains of this life- God has plenty of gains for you. You yourself were in the same position [once], but God was gracious to you, so be careful: God is fully aware of what you do.”
“ Believers, do not betray God and the Messenger, or knowingly betray [other people’s] trust in you.”
“Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah loves not transgressors.”
“And kill them wherever you find them, and expel them from where they had expelled you. Oppression is more serious than murder. But do not fight them at the Sacred Mosque, unless they fight you there. If they fight you, then kill them. Such is the retribution of the disbelievers.”
^ That was in the past, and to simply share your opinion or express your belief is not deserving of judgment. This is NOT fighting Islam. They also follow law of land, BTW. Allah is the only one to judge. Even if you were trying to sway her beliefs, it should only be ignored by her : “When you come across people who speak with scorn about Our revelations, turn away from them until they move on to another topic. If Satan should make you forget, then, when you have remembered, do not sit with those who are doing wrong.”
People take this:
“Let not believers take disbelievers as allies, rather than believers. And whoever [of you] does that has nothing with Allah, except when taking precaution against them in prudence. And Allah warns you of Himself, and to Allah is the [final] destination.”
as not belong allowed to have friends of a different religion. This is fine. But it is not taking disbelievers as enemies.
“ Do not revile those who invoke others apart from God, lest they begin to revile God out of malice and ignorance. We have made attractive their deeds to every people. They have to go back to their Lord, when He will tell them what they used to do.”
Just respect each other
