You are right Kitt about
letting it go. I did confront her with how badly she hurt me. I talked to my therapist about
it today and she was glad I stood up for myself and told the friend how I felt. I am planning for a while maybe a month or 6-8 weeks not talking to her. If we get together with others in the group and she is there I will be polite but as far as I am concerned the friendship has been damaged beyond repair. I know I should forgive her and eventually I will, but she has said many things in the past that have been hurtful and this time she went too far. She just blurts out something without even thinking about
her words or how they might affect someone. She knows she has upset me in the past and has promised not to do it anymore but she just can't seem to help herself about
talking. She is a very nervous person and sometimes when I get off the phone with her I feel like I have had 20 cups of coffee. So forgiving is the right thing to do but the friendship has changed completely and I am working very hard to let it go. It's not easy.
