It started with "I don't like your mean friend"

Friday, January 11, 2013

So, I had some friendship issues last year and by the end of the year, I had not spoken to my best friend in 10 months. It was rough, there was so much I wanted to share but just couldn't do it, I was hurt badly.
A mutual friend asked both of us if we would want to run a half marathon all together. I told her I would think about, she knows nothing of what's happened, and I hoped she would just forget about it.
My bestie & I always just put on a brave face and kind of ignored each other when we had to socialize. We have put up a great front to many people.
Well, the mutual friend did not forget and has been hounding me to do the race through text and social sites. I gave in and texted my bestie telling her that we needed to talk if I was going to commit to the race.
Yesterday was the day, I spent 2 hours in yoga beforehand, trying to find my center, breathe and calm my emotions. I do not like confrontation, I do not like confrontation, kept going through my head. It was time and for the first half hur we just kind of talked circles around the issue asking about kids and family. Finally, I blurted it out " I don't like your mean friend." I explained that what upset me the most about the whole ordeal was that I felt like I was being judged on how I was raising my son and that she and I had never done that, ever. It was a good talk, no one got too upset, no one cried and it looks like I'm going to be doing the 5k, the other 2 will run the half marathon, there's no way I'd be able to do the 13.1 miles in the allotted time.

This will be the perfect way for us to build our friendship again, glitter, tiaras & boas!

    I am glad you were able to address the issue for your own peace of mind. Hopefully, this will be a step towards rebuilding your friendship. If nothing else, you have addressed your feelings and will be able to join in the race at YOUR pace and also on your terms. Good luck with the 5K!!! emoticon emoticon
