Yesterday my childhood best friend got engaged. While we aren’t friends anymore, I was still very happy for her upon seeing the news on Facebook. I thought, just the day or two before, how in love she looked in a photo of her and her bf she just posted. I knew an engagement was coming soon.
Then there was the part of me that somehow had to make it about me and I was sad. I will literally be the last of all my friends AND acquaintances to get married. Guess I just need to keep making younger and younger friends, ha. I’m sorry but people can say what they want…this is a very hard life transition to go through and not come away thinking something must be wrong with me. I was also sad thinking how I push people away constantly and how I won’t be included in this exciting celebration because I suck as a friend.
Anyway, I’ll try to keep reminding myself:
Someone else’s success does NOT equal my personal failure.
