- Wedding: September 2013
I’m a little down bc it’s becoming clear that I’m going to lose some friends/family. I suppose it’s understandable, but it still stings.
I’ve definitely been in a place where I wasn’t happy with my own life, and therefore had a hard time being happy for someone else. But, as I matured I learned to recognize it and fix my thoughts. I guess not everyone has reached that place.
For ex. I don’t think my half-sister is coming to my destination wedding – even though our dad would pay for her to come.
When I last visited my hometown, she flaked on me and went out with her bf instead – when she had originally invited me and my Fiance. So, I didn’t get to see her at all.
But, I kinda get it. She’s 10 yrs older than me, divorced and just breaking up with the bf she flaked me for. Maybe I would be embarrassed that I can’t afford to pay my own way to my little sister’s wedding too.
When I see or talk to everyone, I conciously try to be a good listener and friend. I talk less about myself and rejoice in their happiness, etc and empathize when they have problems.
I’m just feeling that being snubbed isn’t fair.
