The old saying goes, if a friend hurts you, they aren't really your friend. I believe it. But I've never actually had to put it into practice until today. I have 2 close friends...my "inner circle"..the only 2 people, other than my husband that know close to everything about me. I've been there for them through thick and thin. Today, one of those two told me she needs some distance from me, because I'm getting too involved in a serious problem in my other close friend's life. Excuse me?!?
I would love to just be able to say "Fine, shove it up your a** then!" but I can't. I've been there for her through a lot... and almost considered her like family. I'm so mad at her right now I can't think straight.
What would you do?

She might just be jealous that you are helping your other friend and that friend is not leaning on her. Idk I mean if you have close friends like that than you guys will always have your differences and need your own space just like siblings, but don't get so mad that you don't have anything to do with her anymore because friends that close are hard to come by. I might be a little hurt but I would ask her what is going on and why she needs that kind of space due to you 2 are really close friends ( like sisters). Maby you did something to upset her and I would want to know what I did because you don't want to lose that type of friendship. Good luck
