I debated posting this. It’s New Year’s Eve after all…. out with the old and in with the new. It’s a night for celebrations, for rejoicing, and for turning a page. And things are going really great in my life. I have a great husband, a great job, a great support system of both friends and family. Everything is going pretty great except for one thing.
I have a close friend whom in a matter of days went from being the person I wanted to cry with over Sandy Hook to no longer wanting me in their life. I was completely blindsided. This happened to me once before when I was in middle school and I’m not sure I ever got over it. Not that I haven’t had problems with other friends throughout the years. Of course I have. This blog has documented some of them. But I could outline both sides of the problem in those circumstances. Even if I disagreed with why they were mad at me, I understood why they were mad. As I said, this time I was blindsided. A main reason I also hesitated to post this is because [redacted] does read my blog, and this would only add fuel to the fire so to speak. A lot of fire. But I figured anyone that wanted me out of their life, no longer would read a blog whose sole purpose was to document my life and therefore this was a safe, private space…. in a very public forum.
Anyway, I don’t really have anything else to add except for one ironic thought that led me to write this post in the first place. About 5 years ago, on Christmas Day, I got into a discussion about the use of text messaging. I had just sent a “Merry Christmas” text to my nearest and dearest 50 or so friends and my friend commented that texting in general was a weird fad that would never last because it was so impersonal.
So how did this friend “dump” me? Over text. When I stopped crying I started laughing over the absurdity of it all.
Anyway, sorry to post such a downer message on such a wonderful day. And now it’s time to put on a crazy outfit. With crazy accessories. And have a crazy new years.
I wish you all the happiest of new years and a wonderful 2013!
