I hope i have done the right thing...finally
Hi PB welcome
I understand. Firstly allow me to tell you a short story of relevance
My wife of 6 years had a best friend for 25 years. The friend and her husband were planning with us to travel around Oz. I build me own small caravan for the trip. They had a small bus.
Within the first few days I noticed he was less friendly. I had numerous travellers taking notice of my homemade van. Our friends suddenly started driving faster which was against our plans. We couldnt catch them.
So in the outback we had serious engine issues. Where were they? Gone. We struggled to get help. One week later we caught up to them. We argued.
Turned out he was jealous of the attention we were getting from our van. Our friendships were over.
Since then my wife has made new friends. She received a birthday card from her old friend and promptly sent her a reply that, "friends dont treat others like that"
She moved on. And thats what is best to do dont you think?
