My friend and I, whom I have known almost all my life, were planning on taking a once in a lifetime Viking River Cruise up the Rhine River in Germany but then she went on the same trip with 5 other women including my sister. I am not particularly close with my sister but I was hoping to repair our relationship until this happened. They have been planning their trip for over a year but did not tell me about it when in the meantime I have been discussing the same trip with my friend all this time. I found out about the trip the day they left when they all posted pictures on Facebook of them at the airport and arriving in Germany. I am beyond devastated and have been crying my eyes out. I have been particularly close to this so called friend for 4 1/2 years now ever since my husband died but why pretend to want to go on this trip with me and several other friends then plan the exact same trip with my little sister and her friends? Why pretend to love me and enjoy my company, then exclude me? They knew what they were doing was wrong but did so deliberately. I really do not ever want to see either one of them again.

Family can be so complicated.
|Thank You. It hurts but life goes on. It has been a few weeks now so I am calming down but really still do not want to ever see either one of them again.|
|I don't blame you. |
Since the relationships are at a place where they seem to be over and there's nothing to lose, why not send emails that ask exactly those questions and your feelings? Maybe cut and paste what you have written here as a starting point for what you'd like to say?
Or even send them a link to this thread?
