I’ve been going through similar struggles with a dear friend of mine…Sounds like
we may be in the same boat, Kittycoin.
It helps to keep reminding yourself that we are in God’s hands…But what helps me the
MOST is to remember that I can actually offer up my prayers/ works/ and suffering
to obtain graces for my friend.
Don’t know if you’ve read “The Volumes”, but this message said to be from Jesus about abandonment gives me great comfort when I get very discouraged about our struggles…
Hope it helps you and the other posters who are also going through these troubles.

My dear apostles, I am with you. I am with you when
you are working, and I am with you when you are
resting. I am with you when you are at peace, and I
am with you when you are unsettled. You are unsettled less and less,
though. As I watch you, struggling for holiness and struggling for
My will, I can see that you are advancing. You are becoming
stronger and more sure of Me. Even allowing for your human
doubts, I can see that you are accepting My comfort daily, which
makes it easier for you to come through your trials with less
suffering. The greatest suffering is, after all, abandonment. The
greatest cross is that of being left alone while craving the comfort
and love of someone who is dear to you. My friends, often there is
confusion in human relationships which causes terrible suffering.
This part of the cross is heavy, indeed, and I, Myself, suffered this.
It is during these times that I comfort you with the greatest and
most tender graces because I understand the confusion which
accompanies abandonment. For Me, it was important to remind
myself that My Father would not abandon Me. For you, this is also
important. I will never leave you. If you feel that you have been
abandoned by someone you love, either through death or rejection,
then you must come to Me for comfort. I will remind you that in
heaven there will be no tears, no grieving, no heartbreak. In heaven
you will be reunited in love with those who also love Me. Never
worry about those who have gone before you. Pray for them and
trust Me. The family of God is vast and includes people you know
and people you do not know. You will rejoice in heaven and, even
now, heaven rejoices in you. Dear apostles, heaven rejoices in you
at this moment, as you read these words and acknowledge Me as
your King. In the world, the cross was My throne and you, too, are
celebrated by heaven in your suffering. You will not be forsaken and
you will not be forgotten. I will be with you and we will move
forward with heaven’s goals for your life. Have courage, apostles.
All of heaven assists you and protects you.
