OMG… I’m gong to try to give the details of my situation. I feel I’m starting to loose a little patience with a friend Q…
Ok… I work a lot of odd hours. For example I start work sometimes at 6am and work on and off until 7pm – 10pm. And I work 7 days per week. This last month I had a friend Z stay with my husband and I from another country for 1 month.
When friend Z stayed with me it ended up taking a lot of my free time. This was no ones fault it is simply the way it worked out. When I was not with friend Z I tended to spend time with my husband and dog on my free time because that is my family.
Ok… So, then there is friend Q… This is not the first time I have run into this in my adult life and am really wondering what others think or feel. I will say first off I feel my time management skills suck and that is my fault. Anyway… Friend Q started writing me emails wanting to get a hold of me, wanting me to come by her house or wanting to come over my home. This is just me but when I work the hours I do during busy times I really am not into visiting very much. And I did have friend Z staying in my home which made the house somehow seem more crowded more in a mode of chaios if you will.
So, I wrote to friend Q in an email and stated how many hours I was working and that I had a friend staying over. Ooo yes… And we had just moved into our house 3 weeks before and things were just not in order, boxes were out, etc. I told friend Q when things slowed down I would contact her. But, she kept writing me emails wanting to either come by or for me to come by more less pushing me to tell her what was going on. But, I already told her what was going on, there was nothing more to add. She kept asking me if everything was ‘alright’ implying something was wrong if I did not have time for her at that moment. Then she started writing me on my skype account that i happen to use for work and again she was pushing me to meet with her and to let her come over sometimes when I was in the middle of talking to clients. Then when I would tell her I was in the middle of talking to a client she would act like she was mad. OMG…
The thing is yes like everyone does. And I do prefer to be with my dog and my man if given the choice. But, I also like to spend time sometimes with friends. But, I don’t like to be pushed. This is not the first time this has happened to me. This happened another time with a totally different friend pushing me to spend time with her when I just started a new job and was constantly bogged down with work even on my so called days off.
At this point I’m frustrated and don’t know if I have room for someone like this in my life. I’ve know her about 1 year and she is a nice person. But, sometimes I feel people forget that I myself have a family that takes priority. I don’t know. I don’t know if I am wrong for feeling frustrated in this situation or not.
