So Frustrating

I'm a woman so I already have a hit against me in the "dramatic" department. Is it possible that someone can be more dramatic than I am? Well, that depends on the day, I guess. (Some days I can be REALLY over-dramatic. This is generally around "that time" of the month.)

Anywho, have you ever thought you knew someone and suddenly you don't? Chicks get like this a lot. That's why I have very few "serious" female friends. I may have loads of acquaintances but it's difficult for me to let someone get close. I'm so afraid that one day the claws will come out and I'll end up hurt.

I'm the type of person who likes to put it all out there. This is who I am, take it or leave it. I think, for the most part, I'm pretty true and consistant. I'm not trying to say I'm perfect at all. I just admitted to being over-dramatic at times. I'm just trying to say that I've gone through a lot of things and have learned enough about myself to find it easy to just be me.

OK, I know...blah blah blah, right? I guess I'm just finding that I need to vent about this and get it off my chest.  I'm trying to sort this out and move forward.  Maybe you'll have 2 cents that you need would like to share with me. Go ahead. That's what the comments box is for.

  1. So know what you mean. I really don't have a close personal friend. I have tons of acquaintances via church and mom group I go to. But to me a friend is one you go and shop with, just meet up to chick chat. someone your just pal around with. I had or should say I have one from H.S. Days but she lives in CA and me in AZ. I guess as moms we just have to go though these dry spells of not have a serious female friend. Then some day we just might.
    Well that's my 2 cents for today.
    big hugs to you from AZ

  2. Just went through this recently - thought I had the people that I wanted in my life and then I had a bit of a meltdown and realized who my real friends were and where I was deluding myself. And yet - not matter how many times this occurs I am the eternal optimist.
    Here you loud and clear!
    My view on friends these days are not necessarily folks who agree with me but just those who can see it's a tough time and maybe offer to be there through it. But we all view the road differently don't we?

  3. I am going through this right now with a friend. She is mad because I friend-ed someone on facebook she doesn't like. Apparently, we're 14 now? Ugh.

  6. Know what you mean and how you feel! I discovered there's only one true friend....Jesus, the others are acquaintances. There are and will be shifts in these acuqaintances, but the one true friend is always there.
    I believe that venting is good for you. Where better to vent then on your own blog.
    May you be blessed with the acquaintances you need and hold on to the true friend you have!

  7. This is obviously a struggle for most women look at all the comments that say they are going through the same thing! I have learned that I really only need one close friend that completly understands ME! That they can tell over the phone what is wrong and that even if we do not see eachother often that the love is still there ya know! High school is over and it is cooler to have fewer friends lol! It is hard though when we are all growing and changing and learning from our mistakes so of course our friendships will change too! I also have to say that you and Lisabeth are making my blog look bad by always changing yours lol! How do you guys find all these layouts??

  9. I'm the same way. It's really hard for me to make new friends. The close friends I have no are actually either family or friends that I've had since grade school! I'm a "lay it all out there" type of person too and I think in my case anyway that that weirds some people out. We're just like that in my family though, we talk about anything and everything, nothing's a secret. I guess it sort of weirds me out to be around people that aren't like that though, that call poop "bm" or won't talk about it at all, things like that...because I feel like I might say something wrong and offend them at any minute! LOL
