I need outside, neurtral perspectives badly. I am 28 and I live in Russia where I work as a Kindergarten teacher. I am a trained teacher and not one of many people who work overseas 'teaching English.'
My only friends here are other expats from the UK and one American---all of them are highly, highly paid nannies (so much I am thinking of becoming a governess in the next year or two.)
I thought we were cool and all really good friends until I had to discover via facebook that they had a special Queen's Jubilee/going away party with every single person in our group of about ten, including a Russian friend, invited but not me. I sent a civil message to everyone there succintly stating how surprised and hurt I was.
No one has responded except for one person who I don't know well who is well known not to be keen of me for some reason.She comes off as snobby and hostile despite the fact we have never even had a conversation. She essentially said to get over it. No one has called, sent me an email or texted
I just don't know what to think anymore, it's clear this one person persuaded the others to not invite me (even though the party was at another person, a friend's, house) and I simply cannot stand two faced or fake people as I have never been one. I also am completely non-materialistic and actually enjoy my job which none of the nannies do :(
I have been invited to a gathering Sunday, but should I go? I don't know if I can trust or respect these women anymore. Your thoughts?
I just realised the email I used for Sparkpeople has been dead for a year! :( Did you add me and I didn't add you back? *Send me a message in my sparkmail/wall*
