I know the feeling.
I feel ya!
Maybe you need to give them a mouth full and scare the crap out of them,it may not change them but you'll feel better on the inside.
Okay,so what kind of person are you in general?
Wow,you certainly haven't failed from what i'm reading.
Try making new friends - people who don't do whatever it is you've worked so hard to kick. Your old acquaintances might call you stuck up, but hey, like you said - they're trying to drag you down. So they're not really friends...
Ah - you hadn't mentioned divorce. That's a situation that often brings out the worst in people - especially when there are lawyers involved. Good luck, I hope you and your ex can resolve things more peacefully and move on.
Why do you let such unworthy individuals have so much control over your emotions?
I see. Is there any way you can completely disconnect from this person?
I am in the same boat with my ex husband so I can really relate!
