A friend did a shady thing to me today. She didn't like something I did.
We spoke about it beforehand. I apologized. We went into a meeting and
she brought it up at the most inopportune time. I told her something as
a friend. She used it against me (in her role as a supervisor). I was
like a fly caught in a spider's web. The thing is...she didn't have to
bring it up. She could've let it go. She also made the situation worse
than what it was from the beginning. It was her that blew it up more

We are no longer friends.
This cuts me deeply.

I'm asking myself, why? Why would someone who I've spent hours on the
phone with, whom I trained, whom I had so much respect for turn on me?
It could be jealousy. It could be that she had to make a
decision....have a friend or have a career.
Some of us have enough friends, I guess.
I'm no fish.
