Please don't abandon your spiritual path because of someone else, a teacher, a friend or a leader disappoints you. If you do this, you will lose and only you will be hurt. Yes it is too bad when someone you looked to as an example turns away but that doesn't make your faith any less real. Be strong and stay with what you believe. This can happen in life. A mother, a father, a son, a teacher can disappoint us but our path must be to continue and try to help ourselves and in turn we encourage others by example. Isn't the most important thing to strive to follow and try to live a life of caring, kindness, truthfulness and love.
I hope you are soon feeling better.
