Wow, Jen... that sounds like a lot of drama! Try to let as much of go as you can. Simplify and focus on you and your partner. He seems.to make you happy. People say alot of things, half not worth remembering, half not worth repeating. Concentrate on the positives in your life... forgive and forget the negatives or if you decide you can... avoid them.

Did you say you live in Ireland? I'm so jealous! I'm born and raised in the USA but its always been a dream of mine to visit Ireland.
It's funny you should bring this up today cause I was just having dinner with a friend last night who is kind of in the same position as you. I will tell you what I told him. The grass is always greener. It's human nature to see other people's lives and to think that we want what we can't have. Everyone goes through that at some point. But looking at this former friend if yours, you may think her life is better than yours but I'm sure if you had to live her life for even just one day you might find that things aren't all that great for her. People are really good at putting up a front in public to make others think they have an awesome life because they want people to envy them. But in reality behind closed doors what's really there could be financial issues, alcoholism, drug abuse, spousal abuse, problems with kids, lots of fighting all the time, etc. You just don't know for sure what is going on in her life and she may be really unhappy for all you know. It sounds like you have a lovely fiancé so be happy in that and don't waste time comparing yourself to others. It's not a race or a competition. It's you live on your terms and take your own path.
