I wish...

that when you are the most scared and most in need of a friend, that people wouldn't turn away from you.

Whoa.

Worried about you now, Chick.

Lara said...

Not everyone does. Just keep reaching out to people. And email if I can help.

Stephanette said...

There have been days where I understand that comment so well. Let us know if we can help you. Sometimes those "imaginary friends" can be perfect for really honest conversations.

I'll be thinking of you.

I hear ya. I don't know what that's about, but it's happened to me too, and it hurts, you know? Sending a hug, love,V

I'm around if you need an ear.

I know it doesn't help and can't ease the hurt, but maybe those people are scared or emotionally incapable of being there... I feel like they still love you.

Because who could not love such an awesome Chick?

You know, I think it scares people when someone else is scared and reaches out. I've had the same experience. It feels kinda like, "Yeah. Call me when you're happy and shit, because I don't want to deal with your unhappiness." Fair weather friends.

ah honey... I'm so sorry.

People just plain old suck sometimes.

I know it sounds cheesy but I'll be praying for you... since it's all I can do from a thousand miles away.

Sometimes the hard times are when our friends get smacked in the face with the realization that they haven't a clue how to cope with their friend's pain.

That freaks some people out and they pretty much run.

It's sad and wrong and good friends should be better than that, but sometimes they aren't.

I know, because I've been that freaked out friend before.

Better now, having gone through my own stuff...knowing better what to say...how to be.

A couple years ago though? I totally sucked.

I hope everything is okay

J said...

I'm here for you if you ever need me, Chick!

Suzy said...

That's happened to me and right after I go WTF? I usually realize that's a lesson for me. Why am I continually reaching out for people who I secretly know are incapable of being there for me? Then I try and accept that about them or not turn to them or walk away. WIN WIN WIN anyway you play it. It's never about 'them', it's always about us.

Kellie said...

I didn't turn away. I won't. I know it's not the same as being able to come hang out with you, but you know how to reach me. If you need anything, PLEASE reach out.

Amber said...

I with the same thing, too.

At least us bloggers always have one another.

Did you happen to get the email I sent?

Emma in Canada said...

I'm sorry that this is happened to you. I hope everything is okay. Would some flair help?

So do I... so do I!

Hey, if you want to get together and talk or just hang out, let me know! I can imagine that you're feeling a huge mix of feelings right now, and that's overwhelming!

SJ said...

People suck.

And I really truly hope that you are okay!

Seek Jesus. He never lets you down.

And then, once you've pulled yourself through, they spout, "I LOVE YOU! Why didn't you SAY something!" as if they didn't hear you screaming for help all along... I hope that you are better now. Hugs a day late and a dollar short from a stranger named Amy. :)
