Depressed on Facebook

Tuesday, June 03, 2014

I just found out my oldest friend in the world is having bridesmaids. I assumed she wasn't, because of course, if she was, she would have asked me.

The friend I'd call to tell about this situation (my second oldest friend), I can't, because I found out she was getting married on Facebook the day of, so I don't know that she'd understand.

During the same Facebook session in which I found out about the bridesmaids, I found out another close friend (who lived with us for a year and a half when she fell on hard times) was changing jobs.

Why don't I have any friends? Even the friends I think are friends don't think I'm friends, I guess.

Here's a body image link. It's not a new one for me. It's one of my go-tos, but it's wonderful. Just don't read the comments--people are terrible.

    Hey girl,
that sucks about your friend. that's partially the reason i didn't have bridesmaids. i didn't want to hurt any feelings and it just seemed like a hassle. so I gave other people special things to do. Sorry to hear your friend is not including you -- maybe she assumed you wouldn't be able to do wedding party stuff since you're far away? idk, trying to give her the benefit of the doubt but it's tricky. emoticon

    Like Memare, I'm comfortable with my own company and my cat. It takes time and energy and effort to maintain friendships, which I don't do, so I make and lose friends every time my situation changes.

It is sad what you found out on Facebook. What, if anything, do you plan to do about it? It takes time, and energy and effort on both sides to make and maintain friendships.

I hear you regarding friends (or those you thought were friends). At times I think it's a good thing that I like my own company and being at home with hubby. Because I feel that if I'm not the initiator of an invite to spend time with a "friend" I may as well be invisible. I think I spend more time with my dogs. I really don't have gal pals that I hang out with. It doesn't help that I live half a country away from where I grew up. There is no close family nearby.
I ponder at times, does anyone think about me that I used to go to school with, or worked with? But then that would make me sad, because no one calls or reaches out.

So I enjoy what I have around me. I try to better myself, and have a healthy self image. As a believer in Christ, I try to take care of this body which I believe is the temple of the Holy Spirit. We are beautiful and we are worthy.

I hope your friends come around and open their eyes and realize the value you bring to their lives.
