Okay, I need advice of a somewhat personal nature. Fellow LJers, come to my aid! Please! (or non-LJ readers -you too can respond, you know)
I really feel like one of my friend groups has abandoned me. Yes, I know the phone works both ways and I could call them to see what’s up -but I feel somewhat alienated.
The last person I spoke to from this circle of friends cancelled on a house-cleaning date we had: she was going to buy a wedding dress with another friend. We decided to do something another time. I could have sworn that she was supposed to call me the next weekend, but she didn’t.
I have absolutely no communication with any of them (no email, no voice mails, no attempts at contact) since that weekend. Incidentally, that was the weekend immediately following a minor conflict I had with a relative of said group, and that group’s decision to include someone who I’ve had very serious conflicts with in the past (I’ve heard she’s not quite over it either). If it were not for the presence of this person, I probably would have payed them a visit by now.(http://www.livejournal.com/users/ariesfire79/22719.html -to review this situation.)
—SO that’s my dilemma. Am I in the wrong here for assuming they’re intentionally leaving me out? I feel as if they are angry with me for some reason, or think I’ve done something wrong.
I guess I’m sometimes a little insecure about how much people value my friendship. At the same time, I don’t want to lose all these people who I’ve grown to care about over the years just because I don’t want to call and feel rejected. Then again, if they aren’t going to call me either -do they really want me as a friend?
Damn it. I’m feeling really neurotic right about now, but the person in the group who I’d consider myself to be the closest to has just ignored my instant messaging her.
What should I do????????
