Thank you for your reply. I appreciate bluntness.
I have always had male friends in my life. Him and I became friends because at the time I needed a male buddy. I had cut out every male friend I had in my life. I didn't consciously seek out a new friendship with him. We work together. I personally don't think there is a problem having a male friend, even if they are married. But I do believe you are right, the universe has given me a blessing by taking him out of my life. But he was a blessing IN my life, when I needed one. He is a moon child and has a very nurturing soul. My self esteem was in the toilet. I just needed a reminder that I am human and am allowed to make mistakes in life. He helped me to see that. As a friend, I helped him in his battles too.
I know as human being none of us like to be forgotten, I think the thought that I have been forgotten so easily by a friend has hurt me. But, if we were friends that wouldn't happen. It is what it is. I needed help, he was there, and now I don't, and he isn't. Plain and simple.
