My friend said ugly things about me to my boyfriend, he dumped me and now they are dating each other.
I feel angry and I just can’t get over the fact that she played so dirty to get him for herself. I also feel betrayed by my ex as he chose to believe my friend over me after all the support I gave him when his parents died, and all the emotional investment in him for 3 years.
I am confused about whether I in some way allowed this betrayal of trust, and if so, why. I am angry with both of them and myself for where I am today. I just can’t get over the hurt and anger. What should I do?
