Hi and thanks for writing JA
I have read your post and am so sorry for what you experienced when you were 14 and sorry to hear that it was so traumatizing to you that you were not able to access help on this. As a result it has cost you a friendship however tentative that friendship might have been.
A few things that I am a little bit confused about?
I am not sure how your ex friend took friends away from you? Did she lie about you? Spread false rumors? I guess if you could clear up this one part we might be better able to help you. How is she doing this?
Thanks so much for the additional information and warm regards, Cathy
I think the question is not why you cannot attend a friends wedding and drink champagne a table away from him and when you will decide not to be a victim any more?
Ouch. I just know you are going to hate my response, but I have read all that you have written and I just have to say...........
Why are you still letting this man and his new girlfriend victimize you>
I know this is so not what you were wanting to hear, but it is so striking to me that you continue to allow him to hurt you? How come? Whats going on that this is still an issue?
Okay let me know.
With warmth and care, Cathy
