Dividing Friends After a Breakup

Group Therapy: Asking Friends to Choose Between Me and My Ex?

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

Well, my exboyfriend and I have been broken up for over a year. We have a lot of mutual friends together. We dated for 2 years and I broke up with him because of many problems and I believed he was still talking to his ex inappropriately behind my back. I'll just call her "the other woman."

So recently, I've been told "the other woman" started hanging out with friends and I have seen her in pictures. I have never met her before. My ex, also has a new girlfriend and he's bringing her along since he's moving back here with her. I think she wanted to be with him as well when were still together. Yeah, he's quite the ladies man.

Only one of our many mutual friends know why we broke up, but I'm not sure what I should do. I feel kinda hurt when I see these women and him there. I want to attend the events we go to, but I feel kinda hurt when I see them all there. I don't want to make my friends choose sides, and I don't want to abandon my friends because of those people.  I was told that I am the life of the party so they want me there. So what should I do?
