One of the things I have gotten very good at, as a result of divorce, is confronting people "head-on", instead of letting unconfirmed actions or thoughts fester for weeks at a time.
This is difficult to do, as the result is unpredictable. Sometimes, you will be pleasantly surprised, and find that things were not at all what they seemed. Other times, you may be extremely disappointed, losing trust or faith in a friend. Either way, you must accept the fact that you cannot control other people.
Stay true to yourself. Stay true to yourself.
