Anyway, through all of this my family became very upset and stressed - some of them even dividing to side with my uncle's partner.Around this time I also lost the friendship of someone I was extremley close to and valued greatly for, as far as I could see, a no solid reason (it was out of both of our controls) - I still do not understand this and still question it to this day, but it's hit me very hard...
Despite all of this though, I did manage to stay out of the confrontations and incidents within my family, but have not managed to come out unscathed and I'm suffering a lot from it now.
Buddhism has provided me so much comfort and relief through this time (I've no idea how I would have got through without it!!) so I'm slightly unsure why I'm so affected after the fact. I was just hoping that maybe someone might have a little advice, a tried and tested technique or maybe some reading to help relieve some of the stress?
