Ask Amy: Divorce leads to friendship divide
Dear Amy: I am going through a divorce, and I’m having a hard time finding myself.
I was with my husband for a total of 14 years.
I feel lost and don’t know what to do.
I’ve lost a lot of my friends in the process. We were friends with “Frank and Christie,” and I noticed that they don’t care what I’m going through!
Frank was my ex’s friend, but I got close to Christie.
Last year she and I got together.
We had too much to drink and my mouth wouldn’t stop. I told her how I was hurt that she didn’t reach out to me for my birthday and then I told her that she never reached out to me, even though I’m going through a divorce.
She’s been divorced three times now, so I would think she’d know how it feels.
Last month we had planned to get together, but she never responded to my text.
She is neglecting me. I really can’t say she’s a friend now.
