Maybe, it has come to realization. Who on earth would know? However, it really can’t just be with one person. You have to make it right with the entire group. Remember when you had no one. They’ve taken you under their wing. You suddenly are in a situation. Suddenly, you have no use for them. Damn!!
The people have spoken. That’s exactly how they feel, used and abused. You’re invited to every event. They even taken on your drama. Any breakdown, they coddled you. You’ve said so many good things about them. You even bring your friend into this group. She sees how great these people are. Telling you over and over again. You’ve been friends with them for awhile. Slowly, you pulled away from everyone. Many of them feel like, it’s the new relationship. You say it’s something else. You’ve barely hung out with the group. The only time you’ve reached out. Is when you were having some issues. Or, you need attention for something. They’ve picked up on it. They called you out on it. The friend that you’ve introduced them to. Spends her time with them and not with you. She’s even called you out to receive a smug response.
I guess she’s thought about it. Which is surprising because I never knew she can think. She doesn’t seem to have a mind of her own. Her friend decides to give her a chance. They have a conversation again… It’s tears and apologies. Same for a few in the group. I think it’s now… You’re the friend of the friend. It’s like seventh grade with these people. At the same time, it’s the principal. If these people are there for you. You should return the favor. Not just when it’s convenient.
Shockingly, she’s showing up more. It’s going to be a work in progress. We’ll have to see. She is on strike two. More like two point eight. There has not been any arguments. That’s a definite plus… Folks aren’t getting any younger. Also, they deserve to be treated the same.
