- Wedding: June 2020
So some of you may remember Gwen from a previous post I’ve made (click here). Basically she used to be a very close friend of mine and roommate, almost broke our lease by bringing home a cat (no pets policy on lease), and then moved back in with her parents without finding a subleaser. I had a private conversation with her explaining how there were hurt feelings, which she took as us blaming her for the entire situation (which was created by her, but I digress), and she dropped myself and 4 mutual friends in a group message.
Since then, I found she had been venting about us on twitter for six months, she tried to re-friend Rissa but immediately took it back when Rissa said she wasn’t sure, messaged me two months after I went no-contact with her which mainly consisting of her calling us terrible friends who should have never blamed her for not finding a subleaser because she assumed we had found one, she’s blocked all of us on social media, she befriended Andy’s new girlfriend and then bashed him and the rest of us in messages to her, and there’s been a plethora of petty social media posts (that people keep telling me about at least).
Outside of the time she directly messaged me, I’ve kept no contact. I wish no part in her antics for attention and drama. But a recent post has me FED UP. I have a good support system, and will not respond to this, but I have to vent.
Gwen got involved with a multi-level marketing scheme, akin to a pyramid scheme, with the company ItWorks!. A few days in, she makes a post promoting this new ‘business venture’ that bashes all of us multiple times in it.
Here’s one snippet from it: “And hell, I’m not even the same girl I was 4 months ago, when I was living in a mess of a life with my ex and 3 “friends” who assumed I was doing fine when in reality I needed to better myself with them not in the picture but wouldn’t take that as an answer so they threw blame at me for something they wouldn’t tell me.”
Ugh, WHY CANT SHE JUST LEAVE US BE AND LET THE PAST BE THE PAST. Shit talking us us publicly for months to mutual friends and colleagues is one thing (and something I’m going to have to deal with when school starts again in less than a month – this whole time I’ve been living 200 miles away for an internship) but twisting the entire scenario to promote an MLM is beyond disrespectful. It’s downright insulting to me.
Bleh. I can’t believe I ever called her a friend. Glad she’s out of my life. Thanks for letting me rant.
