After the father figure in my life stopped talking to me, my boyfriend left me and I fell in love with my best friend, I realised I needed to change â€“ but how?
Last year was very hard for me in terms of relationships. My father figure stopped talking to me, my boyfriend of several years broke up with me unexpectedly, and I became very attached to â€“ and maybe even fell in love with â€“ my best friend, who was in a relationship. I had no plan to pursue him in any way other than the friendship we had, but because we could talk about anything, I let him know how I felt. Now he doesnâ€™t talk to me either. I need to get past this, and never develop these unhealthy attachments again. Until I do, I will feel a lot of sadness.
