I am frustrated and I think that frustration made it really hard for me to sleep last night. I need some advice.
Why am I frustrated, you ask? Well…
I mentioned this friend that I have who I don’t really consider a friend anymore. Well, she called me yesterday to invite me to her b’day dinner this weekend. I won’t be in town (we are going camping!) but then we sort of talked for a bit.
She asked if I was ready for the Peachtree (I am not) and made sure to tell me that she can run 12 miles and oh how great that is. She mentioned a lot of “I” in our conversation and I am pretty sure she didn’t really want to talk to me or care what I had to say. She also quickly quipped if I was engaged yet…like I wouldn’t have called her if I was? I just don’t understand it anymore.
When we were talking about running she also mentioned that she can run a mile in like 7 minutes (I am about a 10 min miler if there are no hills). And she did offer to have a running buddy. I just don’t know if I should take her up on that.
I guess I am feeling that she doesn’t really value my friendship and she is all about herself (which really is nothing new). I don’t think I can be friends with someone like that because I don’t think I am like that (if I am, someone please tell me because I don’t want to come across like that). And it’s frustrating because we were friends for so long, but that doesn’t make her a quality friend. And getting closer to 30 I want quality friends…not quantity.
Has anyone else had issues with friends before?
