Starting the New Year Off on a Not-So-Positive Note

It’s never easy when you lose a friend. Although it is a little easier when you know why: they said things were over. Or they moved. Or they passed away. But those explanations don’t apply to my situation.

The girl that I was friends with two months ago, but I’m not friends with now, we had a miscommunication and she hasn’t spoken to me since. I’m not really sure what to think about that anymore.

I’ve tried to be mature about the whole thing. I text her Happy Thanksgiving. I text her Merry Christmas. And I’ll text her Happy New Year. I got nothing back from her with the first two texts, and I’m not really expecting to get anything back when I send her the next/last text in a couple days.

However, sometimes it comes to a point that you’ve done all you can and you have to bow out. And I think that’s what’s happening here. I can’t make her talk to me any more than I can make a blind person have 20/20 vision.

I don’t need the constant reminder of the miscommunication all over the place, and therefore I’ve made the decision that if I haven’t heard from her in some way by January 1st I’m going to remove her from my life. That means deleting her from Facebook and Twitter and Tumblr and my phone/iPod. There’s just no reason to leave her contact information there if she’s not willing to communicate with me.

About Me

Hello! Welcome! My name is Katy!
You can find me drinking coffee until it’s time for wine. Currently have 5 tattoos, but plans for more are in the works.
I’m a birthmom over 8 years post placement. I’ve been in a birthmom support group since November 2018, and will be leading my own come May 2023.
On Sunday mornings you can usually find me in the nursery or on the production team at church.
Various times throughout the year, you can find me staying with someone’s dog(s) while they’re away on a trip – so don’t be surprised if there are stories or pictures every so often.
