Need Relationship Help


I used to feel alone, abandoned, invisible. Like no one in this whole world cared about me. I was in pain, crying out for help, but nobody would listen to my cries. Nobody would reach out their hand to help me up from the black pit that was my depressed life. But then I met two people who changed everything. James and Grace.

I met James through my cousin. She introduced us over the phone one night and the next day when they went to hang out, I tagged along. After that James and I started to talk all the time. From the moment we woke up to the instant we fell asleep. He made me feel so wonderful, like he needed me to be happy just for him to go on living. For awhile he was my whole world.

Looking back on that time, I can honestly say that I might have been in love with him. But I should have known that it was too good to last. Soon, he started asking for inappropriate pictures of me and when I wouldn't send them, he quit talking to me. It crushed me. I nearly killed myself. Grace stopped me.

Grace is now my best friend. She has pulled me through so much that she can tell my life's story almost as well as I can. After James crushed my heart, she's the one who glued it back together. She guards it now. She keeps a close eye on me :) She reminds me of a prison warden at times, but I love her all the same.

James called me a few weeks ago after months of not talking to me. I answered and told him that I didn't need him in my life anymore and that all he did for me was build me up so that he could tear me down.

I told him that it was guys like him that gave guys a bad rep and not to call me anymore because he was no longer a person I wanted in my future.

Now there is a new guy, Alex. He's a poet. He is amazing. I used to talk to him all the time. After a few days of constant chatter, I introduced him to Grace so she could tell me what she thought of him. Problem was after that Alex stopped talking to me for awhile and now only calls to see where grace is.

I don't know what to do. Please, I need some advice.

Thanks for Your Input

Thank you. I actually decided that last night when he asked me if I was okay with it. I told him I was. Grace is my best friend. She deserves to be happy. Thanks for your input.

Let Go!

There isn't anything you can do. Alex wants Grace. Be a friend and let him have who he wants.
