I get hurt (feelings) very easily.
I know this, I look out for my tendency toward self pity.
I was about to plaster on my happy face this morning – but the hurt in my chest just won’t let me.
Here goes my attempt to get this off my chest.
I told two friends yesterday that I needed to talk, and asked if they would let me know when they had time for me to call. Neither person has let me know that it’s ok to call, that they have time to hear me…nothing…
I just want a semi-objective witness/sounding board, not a solution.
How do you have meaningful friendships without giving people the power to hurt you?
