How does it relate to your life right now?

I currently am at a quandry, really just miffed at how a conflict/fight I had with a girlfriend has taken deeper dimensions. What started as one issue has led into other resentments on my part. One week before all this blew up, I started this study and chose the 5 of Swords. At the time I had no clue that this card would take a deeper significance. I believe my 30+ year friendship maybe over as a result of this fight. If not, it certainly will get an overhaul. A great deal is my fault since I did not voice concerns, and issues as they happened. I have allowed myself to look over transgressions made by my girfriend(platonic relationship). In turn, I feel myself to have been taken for granted a few times too many. I struggle for solution, and I presently keep my silence. I do not wish to communicate for the fact I do not know what to say or how to remedy the situation. Intrinsically I feel at peace with all that has transpired, and I certainly can see where we have grown apart for many years now.
This has been an interesting practice, I found it a challenge and hope I did it correctly.
