Too Much, Too Fast!!!
(Dix Hills, New York, United States)
Hi, My name is Allie and I am grieving the loss of multiple friendships. I had the picture perfect summer and got very close with many women at my church. Then one by one over the span of a couple of months, from November through February, they all decided to back stab me and "check out" of the friendships. It is very difficult for me to cope with because I formed tight bonds with these women and one of them, Linda, even stepped in a role to assist in healing a wound from a long time ago involving my Confirmation Sponsor who was never there for me. I am currently going to a catholic counselor and I am trying to pick up the pieces and move on, but it is so difficult. My grief over Linda has been incredibly hard because she took on that role and this betrayal has surfaced my emotions about losing another person who took on the role of Confirmation Sponsor. It's all just too much, too fast.
