Friend - I am a TERRIBLE one

I seem to SUCK at being a friend. I struggle to cope with my own life, and being a bit of an introvert, I need time to myself first to regroup before I am ready to tackle the world. As a result I am not the best friend.

My friend of 12 years just sent me a bitchy sarcastic e-mail this morning ending by saying - 'don't bother to respond and have a nice life.'

Did I DO anything nasty or wrong? No.

Has she contacted ME? Or asked if I am ok? No.

I just didn't give her enough attention. I did think about her a lot, I just haven't actually made contact. It's not that I have been gallivanting anywhere else, I have just been working, and working, dealing with my grans health issues, Quinn's op, the death of my friend's baby, and a bunch of other stuff.... I just haven;t been coping well with my life at all.

But yeah I do understand that as far as friends go, I am not good at it.


  1. Ouch. Maybe it's just as well she doesn't want to be your friend. Sounds like she doesn't know how to be one. A true friend would understand why you haven't been in contact and not take it personally.

  2. Thanks Christie. I think she is just not understanding that she is not exclusive in being 'ignored' everyone is getting ignored cos there's only so much of me to go around... something has got to give soon though!
