I have to tell you about this. Until last year I worked at Uni and I had a group of students who I was in contact with, we met outside for a drink and a chat.
Some of their issues came out and I tried to help them.
One of them was a very intelligent and bright person. We became friends as he was the best of all the others, and I like bright students.
Now this boy is largely overweight I'd say more on the obese side. I thought I could share Sparkpeople with him, and was thinking how I could tell him about my experience on SP , how I lost some weight and how much I've been changing since I met SP.
Now I just could not imagine what would happen.
Met him by chance, he was talking with a beautiful girl, a dark haired Eva Mendez type anyway I felt there was something wrong in him but don't know what.
So I called him and sent him an email, just to ask him how he was ,but had no answer.
I also tried to text him but he never answered.
I am so sorry, I feel useless, I sincerely wanted him to get to know about SP, and actually I enjoyed his friendship, but it ended up nowhere.
Now I know Eva Mendez is his first issue at the moment and I don't know when he'll be back on this planet and when he'll have a chance to get to know about SP.
Anyway I'm sure he will never show up anymore.
A lost friend, in all cases, for me.
And a lost opportunity to spread SP.
Can anybody out there help me to reframe? I know I should but I don't know how to change my feelings of defeat and hopelessness. I thought my experience would be valuable, actually it's not
PS I already canceled his number from my phone and his email from my list.
I will never contact him again, I'm not looking for people who are not really friends, just acquaintances.
