Default a non-poly relationship question

I thought that this would be a good place to ask though since poly peeps seem to have a little more experience with relationships in general and might be able to help me out here. I'm wondering at what point do you just give up hope in a friendship, cut ties and move on?

I have a friend who was one of the first people I met when I moved out here. We have spent a lot of time together over the past 6 years, basically we raised our kids together. We spent about 4 days a week together and could always rely on each other if one or the other was in a tough spot, either with practical day to day things or emotionally.

In November she met someone who is now her partner. Ever since then she cancels on me basically every time we make plans or if she does actually show up it's for as short a time as possible before running off to be with her partner again. This isn't the first time she's been in a relationship since I've known her but it is the first time I've been completely dropped. I don't know if I should just hold out for the NRE to wear off or if I should just cut her out of my life because it causes me pain. Any words of wisdom will be greatly appreciated.

Everything will be ok in the end. If it's not ok it's not the end.
