How do you get over being hurt and start getting crazy mad at the person who hurt you? Any ideas on how to get ANGRY, especially when you still care about the person that hurt you? Long story short, a "friend" really dissed me by cutting me off without a word when I refused to date him (he's married). I'm having a hard time dealing with how abrupt and mean this guy has been...when for the last 10+ years, he has ONLY been a great friend and a perfect gentleman. I'm tired of feeling confused, now I want to start feeling mad...at him. Any advice how?

You'll get there eventually without doing anything special. It's all a part of the process. Shock, denial, sadness, ANGER, acceptance. However, there are some things you will start to consider. Is his marriage happy or do his wife and kids at least think so? If so, ask yourself "why would he treat HER like that? She's x and y positive quailities! She's been good and honest to him for (however long they've been married). Why would he throw her away for me?" Then think about why he wouldn't have more respect for both his marriage AND your friendship. If this is the way he views both, then after a certain point, neither you nor his wife were anything more to him than toys. It really seems as if he does not have a great deal of value on either of you.0
