Ahh, I need some quick advice - May 14th 2009, 11:04 PM

A few weeks ago, something terrible happen to my family and we are still trying to pick up the pieces about two and a half weeks later. I told one of my closest friends what happened and I made her swore she would not tell anyone at school as this was an extremely personal matter to me. Unfortunately, next day, a friend of mine comes over and asks me about it. I instantly knew my friend had told her and she even told me that my friend told her. I have not confronted my friend about this nor do I really want to, but half of me wants to as I am still ticked off. My biggest problem with the fact that she told her is because this was an extremely personal matter and this was my FAMILY's problem. All I wanted was some support during a difficult time and while I received that, it obviously had terrible results. Should I confront my friend, even if this occurred a few weeks ago? Is it too late? I am really worried that if I confront my friend, this will make things very awkward between us, etc. I'd love if anyone could give me some advice. Thanks!

How did Mandela get the will to surpass the everyday,
When injustice had him caged and trapped in every way,
How did Ghandi ever withstand the hunger strikes and all,
Didn't do it to gain power or money if I recall,
It's to give; I guess I'll pass it on

Its better late then never.<---A good quote to live by.
I think that you shoul confront your friend about it. But be calm when you do it. If you're tense,and a bit mad when you talk to her, it will only make things worse. Try not to make it a heated argument. I think it'd be better in person, because well, serious convo's are always better in person.
It might be awkward,it might not be. Who knows. You just have to take that risk.
If you decide to,Good luck. And tell us how it goes.
I hope things work out between you both.
