Over the past 3 years I developed a very close relationship with a female friend - we talked almost every day, went to the gym together, worked on school volunteer commitees together, etc. . During this time she opened up to me and told me all about her problems with her spouse and I encouraged her to talk to a professional about it. She did and started seeing a counselor with and a counselor without her husband.
A few months ago, we had a big argument over really nothing, I apologized and she told me that it was all o.k. and all was forgiven, and I believe her. However, as time has passed she has become more and more withdrawn, will not share anything personal anymore, will not return phone calls or emails and doesn't want to do anything together anymore, she told me "it's not personal" but wouldn't tell me why she doesn't have time for anythign anymore. It's the same excuse: " I have too many things to do".
I am heart broken over this, I have a ton of friends, a big extended family 2 blocks away and an amazingly supportive husband and four great kids, but I feel like part of me is now missing. She was the one friend I could be completely honest with and she helped me overcome some major personal obstacles and now I feel abandoned and thrown out.
Part of me wants to keep doing what I always did as far as supportive phone calls and emails and part of me is very hurt.
Any insight on her behaviour or how to deal with it would be great.
Thank you for reading, this is tearing me apart and my husband and kids are getting frustrated with my moping around.
