I'm sorry that this happened to you. I've been there and know how it feels.

So sorry you were hurt! You are right honesty is always best, but trusting somebody wholeheartedly is wonderful!

Sometime we find the right person with whom we can share everything.... and even if you hurt them, they would never use the things you have shared to hurt you. I know... I am lucky enough to have found one!

Hugs

Caroline

Same here! :|

We've all been through things like this and it hurts. I'm sorry it happened to you but whatever you do, don't hang onto it. Forgive the person and get on with your life. Hurts are heavy and the weight of carrying them around will eventually drag you down especially if you're carrying multiples. Let it go! If the other person won't allow the rip in the relationship to be mended, then walk away and forget about it knowing that you've done what you could to fix it.

I try to limit my contact with people, I'm more at ease in my sewing room.

Forgive!!! Many, Many years ago i apparently said something to my dear friend. To this day, I don't know what I said. She hasn't spoken to me in 30 yrs. I feel sad I lost such a good friend....but then, would a friend be a good friend if they don't open up and tell me what I said???? or even QUESTION whether I said it. {{hugs}}to you....hope you have a better day.

The same thing happened to me last year. I have no idea what I did, but that is her problem. It's always a kick in the stomach when someone we trust turns on us. I have found that if I pray for them, it helps me.

I learned to be careful about what I say and do, never let my guard down and get too comfortable with someone, and also to be honest from the start.
So sad, especially when there is no need. Sending you hugs.

This just keeps playing across my mind. I really am sorry that this has happened to you & that you are hurt. I sure am. It's happened to me by what I thought were friends. Even though you are hurt & sad, you need to see that they really were not caring of you or your feelings. I hope you will heal and let those that do care, help you to heal and trust again. Try just letting it go & let God help you through it, so that you can move forward. It is apparent that you have a lot of folks here that care deeply for you.

HUGE HUGS

I understand, my hubby and I helped a lady out about 4 years ago, long story and now she doesn't want to be friends.

Live and learn!

Take care!
