am i back in highschool?
alright, so i'm having this dilemna. i sent out an email to my closest 3 girlfriends to let them know the big news, that i in fact was going to give birth. two of my girlfriends were through the roof, the other one, not so much. now she didn't really NOT extend a congrats, but it was very mediocre. along the lines of "congrats melissa, that's great. i hope you're happy". what do you mean you hope i'm happy? of course i am, we're estatic, that's why i'm telling you with such enthusiasm! so then it came up in conversation with one of the three that i was worried about her reaction. did i feel a little highschool saying something like that; maybe a little. but it was on my mind. the next thing i know, it's coming back to bite me in the behind. a series of nasty emails telling me to talk to her personally about situations would be appreciated, that she was never NOT happy etc. i didn't even know what to say. i was dumbfounded. so i sent the backdown email, i was in no mood to fight, it's not my thing really. i just simply say "L i'm sorry, i never wanted you upset, and i still don't. i don't know what to say, the damage is done, i apologize. i'll leave the ball in your court and when you are not upset anymore, you can message me." i thought i was being a peacekeeper. apparently not. i get yet another nasty email back. "you clearly don't understand. this is insane." no, you know what, i do understand and you're insane. i feel like i'm back in highschool? i thought we were grown mature women, who valued eachother's friendship and when one offered a peace offering, it was taken. apparently not. do any of you still go through this with friends? *sigh*
