    In 2008 I was 35 years old and looking back now (was probably at a cross roads in my life).I felt a former friend wanted to end the friendship deep down I didnt want to see it at the time. On the one occassion we had an argument and words were exchanged. Also I Felt she was rubbing the fact she was married and had children (I have since got married myself and had a child).

    Losing this friendship hurt more than anything. Also a few days later I received a letter from another friend who said she was cutting the friendship off. I was shocked and just as devastated as I was still grieving the loss of the first friendship.

    Even now it hurts and am still feeling so hurt because we had known each other since the age of 11.

    However this friendships have left a permanent emotional scar but at the same time It proved as a catalyst for change in my life.

    I have now moved on so much with life and have had further fractured friendships along the way that I feel friendship is not worth investingly too deeply into.

    Also I have a wonderful marriage a lovely 2 year old son and another baby on the way. I am glad these people are not in my life anymore.
