i was with this great guy for a year, but broke things off because even though he was the perfect boyfriend, my career came first (maybe it was the wrong decision, who knows). but then one of my best friends started dating him, which definitely wasn't okay with me. I told her so, and she agreed that she would hate if any of her friends did the same thing to her and dated her ex, yet she was a hypocrite and stayed with him behind my back. so finally I ended the friendship with her, and thought that they wouldn't last anyway.
well I was wrong, I found out they got engaged a month ago. now I feel hurt and jealous, and yeah maybe that sounds immature for not being happy for them, because I'm the one that broke things off, but how would you guys react in this situation? do I have a right to be upset, or do I just look silly?

you have every right not be happy for them. Yes you ended things with your ex, but the fact that one of your best friends started dating him even after you told her you weren't okay with it is pretty messed up. If she was really your friend she wouldn't let a guy come between your friendship. If I was in this situation I'd feel hurt, jealous, and betrayed. Even though you broke things off with him you did it because your career came first. I think that's a pretty commendable decision. I don't think you're being silly at all. this is just a really unfortunate situation. guess it just goes to show that he's not the one you're meant to be with. I know it's hard to accept but there's someone else out there for you and as difficult as it may be it's time for you to start moving on with your life because there's nothing you can do about it now. best of luck to you3
