ok foo, time for a friend dilemma. For some reason I think I might have posted this before? Anyway, its still bugging me
Last summer my best friend dropped me like a hot potato. She'd make plans (right down the road from me) and not include me. I feel like we've been drifting apart anyway (ie. all she did was party, and I'm getting out of that stage), so I just let it go as I was consumed with a lot of good things that were going on in my life, didn't want the drama.
She came back around in the fall with apologies and tears when my dad passed away (the first I saw her in a couple months was the funeral) and explained she'd been incredibly depressed and it was difficult being around me (essentially she was depressed and jealous of my life: new job, awesome apartment, a boyfriend-- all things she wanted). We chatted about her problems, and in short I'd say we were back on better terms.
During "her" falling out (not mine, as I never had an issue) she booked a trip to Vegas with some friends-- didn't include me (we've always been vacation friends). I let it go as whatever she had been dealing with.
We chat now & then on the phone. I'd say our friendship isn't the same, I don't depend on her, but she seems to call me when she's having a bad day (or maybe nobody else answers?)
I get the feeling via facebook she's booked a spring vacation, and again not included me. Despite her apologies of being a bad friend, etc. -- ?
I'm tired of the excuse "its had being around you, I'm jealous and depressed". I don't really understand depression. Is this even legit? Sounds like a load of crap to me.
Its hard losing a friend.
