sorry to hear about your frustrations man, i know how it feels.
a coule of years ago, i had a similar "experience".
here's some quotes that hopefully can help put htings in perspective.
affliction comes to us, not to make us sad, but sober; not to make us sorry, but wise. -- henry beecher
in three words i can sum up everything i've learned about life. it goes on. -- robert frost
choose your friends carefully, your enemies will choose you. -- yassir arafat
women, can't live with them...pass the beer nuts -- norm from cheers.
It's hard totally dropping a close friend. I've done it. Let me tell you it wasn't easy at all. But once you get through it then it gets so much easier to drop friends left and right if you exhausted your attempts at reconciliation. I think to date I have dropped a handful of close friends. I don't keep their phone numbers, addresses, or listen for rumor mills or any point of contact. You got to remember that you got a life to lead and things to do like eating, sleeping, working, paying off a car, rent and such to worry about. Don't lose sleep on what other ppl might think of you or if they wanna be your bestest gee golly hand holding buddy in da whole wide world. Screw it...save up for a that new Home Theatre system and mansion. Best revenge is living well or better than them
