I am surrounded by more friends than ever. Having lived with someone who suffers with a mental illness and doesn't acknowledge it, has been the biggest mistake of my life. I have learned so much about communication and how important it is for people in a romantic relationship to share every thought. It's too bad that I still and will always love her because she is taking her ill parents' advice and her life will be a waste.
Great quote about dear friends - I thought I had some Very Good Friends in my life, but - after 20-30+ years of being in my life, they all threw me under the usual bus. It's painful. But to think I loved these people & might have, situation-wise, taken a bullet for them makes me sick to my stomach. Betrayal is a very word.
