I’m so sorry for all your mom has gone through. It’s really sad and really stinks when other people don’t appreciate your efforts and friendship, no matter how hard you try. Your mom was right about those other neighborhood women though, it sounds to me that they weren’t worthy of your mom’s friendship judging by how terribly they behaved towards her. I think that maybe they were jealous of her, because it sounds like your mom’s got it all: She’s an amazing person and has a wonderful husband and daughter. My mom actually has a friend that went through a similar experience as your mom: My mom and her friend were in a group of friends together, they went to lunch together, the kids played together, etc. Then one day, unexpectedly, the friend’s husband passed away. You would think that when something tragic like this happens, your friends would be there for you? Nope, not these friends. My mom managed to stay out of it, but the other ladies in the group were completely heartless: They treated this friendly terribly while she was going through the worst possible thing in her life–losing her husband! This was years ago, and this friend has completely turned her life around and her kids are doing well too, and she has not spoken to these so called “friends” since.

I still feel as though you should give friendships a chance. You are taking a risk when you open yourself up to others, taking in the good and bad, but it is so worth it once you do find those friends who appreciate you for who you are. From my experiences, I’ve found that not all friendships are meant to last forever, and that some people only come into our lives for a short time, while others stay in for the long run.

@arenyth:

If your mom lived near me I’d be her best friend.  She sounds like just the type of friend I’m looking for.   ๐Ÿ™

Oh lord, this sounds just like what happened to me in high school. I thought women grew out of that petty bullsh*t.  ๐Ÿ™

Give your mom some extra hugs from the bees next time you see her!
