I graduate from nursing school tomorrow. I should be ecstatic, instead I’m sitting here in tears in front of my computer just wishing I could skip tomorrow.
Here is why:
Instead of sending out invitations to my graduation party early, I wanted to be 100% sure I was graduating so I waited until I had my final grades to let friends know. My parents are having the party and most of my family will be attending but I just found out the other day that my 3 best friends will not be able to make it. I was bummed, but still ok knowing my family was going to be there to support me.
Tonight I get a facebook message from my brother’s wife saying they are so sorry they will not be coming… when I had heard just yesterday from my mom that they would be there. I was crushed. I called my mom and she verified that they are now unable to attend. My brother has a valid reason which I am unable to disclose, but I am still entirely hurt by him not coming.
While on facebook, in my newsfeed pops up the information that my ex is now engaged, just today. WTH! I am not upset that he is engaged, but it really stings knowing that I am still waiting and my SO has had the ring since Feb. This will be the ex’s third marriage, so it’s not that big of a deal for him to get engaged, but still why am I still waiting???
Enough of my pity party, I just needed to vent a little bit!

::hugs:: Vent all you want! Sounds like you had a really rough day.
But graduating is such an amazing achievement! I’m sorry to hear your brother won’t make it but at least you’ll still be surrounded by family. 🙂

Thanks ladies it actually feels a little better to put it all out there. I’ve been trying to just act like everything is fine because every one expects me to be so happy and excited to graduate, but it’s just not how I’m feeling at the moment. I really do appreciate the supportive comments 🙂

It’s def. alright to be upset that your brothers anf friends can’t make it to an important milestone in your life. Would never get on someone about that. And you aren’t the only one who is tired of waiting, all of this is totally understandable! But like I said before, it’s still awesome that you are graduating, and you should be proud of yourself! 🙂

You need to plan a girl’s night out with your best friends to celebrate your graduation. Congratulations!

I don’t think comparing your relationship to your ex’s is a good idea. He’s obviously troubled if he’s getting married for the 3rd time.
