Thank you so much for your supporting comment on my blog. I love your suggestion! But I do think that at this point it is too late... I also don't think it's a friendship worth saving. I doubt *I* could get past it now. I lost so much respect for her because she didn't let me know this was going on. *I* had to ask. Chances are it's a friendship that would have died anyways. She's having a baby soon and moving into a new part of her life, I'm planning to move away to a new job... It just doesn't seem worth it, especially if how she handled this situation is any indication of how she would handle things in the future. I'm the type of person who hangs on until the bitter end, perhaps beyond the point that I should hang on, even beyond that point that would be considered healthy. I'm trying to learn not to do that and not to allow people to walk on me and use my natural inclinations to help, love, and be loyal to others against me. It's tough, but I think it will be good for me in the end. This is just one exercise in that lesson, and of course, growing pains are always uncomfortable.
