Just lost it with 2 of my (old) best friends
What a totally exhausting night.
After weeks of trying to get in touch with them, and being all but ignored, I decided to lay it all out so I knew where we stood.
We all lived close through our teens up to when I moved to be closer to my soon to be Husband 200 miles away. Then It changed, as we knew it would and we got on with our own things. Caught up now and then and became a very facebook friendship.
I sent out my save the dates a while ago and have just started sending out invites. Now I dont know why but these 2 friends decide to ignore all my messages and text and phone calls over the past 2 weeks and now I start to think I have done something wrong.
Anyway that brings us to tonight where I send one loooong message to them explaining m feelings and asking them to explain the situation.
Long story short they erupt, telling me i am selfish for having my wedding so far away and that im being emotional because I know none of my friends will come (thy are not aware at this point that 8 girls who I worked with over 2 years ago are coming) and that I have a cheek asking them to readdress their financial spending for m wedding. I'll be dammed if I ever mentioned such a thing!
I have come to the conclusion we are no longer friends and that people do grow apart, and that it takes a wedding to finalise it.
