How do you not be offended when someone you have been "friends" with your whole life... starts dating someone... gets engaged... and sets a wedding date... without even bothering to tell you ANY of those things? (Not even ONE detail... even to this day! I had to find out from my mom.)
When I say "friends"... it's more of a one sided thing, I suppose. I try to keep up via email, text, calls, snail mail......... yet it has ended up being pretty much one-sided for the past 2.5 years.
I guess that should be my first clue. If it's been one-sided for so long... apparently our "friendship" isn't what I thought or hoped it would be. But I can't deny that it still hurts my feelings to have been left out of such important life-altering details of someone whom I care very much about.
I'm not much for New Years Resolutions... but I guess perhaps 2011 will be a year to really take stock of those who are most important in my life. I can resolve myself to just move on from those who have removed themselves from me... and focus on my family and our (soon-to-be) new arrival.
Not to say that it still doesn't sting a little... but I choose not to make myself miserable just because I'm not in the loop. I have my own loops to keep me busy!
So here's to 2011 and MOVING ON!
.... and to less than 1 month till we meet our wee babe!! :) Eeek!
