Hi Less Angry,
Thank you for the nice acknowledgments.
It's tricky communicating with a "friend" going through a divorce because it's usually too late to positively support both partners, (the assumption here being that the way you have been communicating, your leadership communication skills didn't/don't inspire harmony. Usually both partners are addicted to blaming and badmouthing and to abusing and being abused—re: ". . . yells at me. . ." I'm guessing that she did not later verbally acknowledged to you that she knows that her abusive yelling at you didn't feel good. And, that you didn't support her in verbally acknowledging her abuse to you. And, that you didn't acknowledge to her, "I get that my laughing was inappropriate and that it didn't feel good." In other words, it appears that you unconsciously enabled her in doing to you what she's been doing to her partner and, what you two were doing to each other.
The test of whether or not you are communicating vs talking is that when communication takes place problems are resolved. Enablers unconsciously support friends in talking about their problem which causes the problem to persist. With a divorce, the mind of a third party is usually programmed to unconsciously take sides, this does a great disservice to the couple. The mind takes sides when it hasn't accepted responsibility for having caused a similar problem.
Life won't work the way you say you want if you continue to interact with those addicted to abusing and being abused, if you continue intending and rewarding abuse.

P.S. "I received two emails for job interviews, opportunities started to appearing..." That's great. That's exactly what's supposed to happen; when you empty the mind of incompletes you create space, space to manifest a stated intention. Even cleaning a closet, donating stuff to Goodwill, creates space for newer clothing that represents the present-day you.
