If Only I Could Learn How To Keep My Mouth Shut

I met my friend about three years ago. At the time I was suffering from a severe obsession and I think she brought me out of it just by being in the right place at the right time. About two years ago she started telling me things about herself. Things that I was not sure I could handle, such as her fathers affairs and her alcohol problems and since I was raised in a box, this kind of thing was new and horrifying to me. She was in so much pain and there was no way for me to help her. She told me that being there for her was help enough and so I lied to her and said I could handle it because I wanted her to have someone to talk to. Then a year ago she had to leave our school because of family problems and her boyfriend and her other friend we're asking me what happened and they were asking me why she left and I broke down and told them everything. I feel so bad I can't even live with myself and it's hard knowing that i'm a horrible person and I never think before I speak and I guess I just thought that they could help me help her or some damn thing and now they're telling her what I told them. And she thinks I'm just going around saying stuff and I feel so bad I don't know what to do with myself. I'm horrible.
