Wishing you courage

"Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying 'I will try again tomorrow'."

Back to speachless

Thanks for the ideas on how to handle this situation with my friend. After thinking about it for a few days and journaling about the things I could say I haven't thought of anything that is appropriate. My side of the story sounds whiney, the bottom line of every draft is - I think you were mean to me so I don't want to be friends anymore - which is actually true but it just sounds so ridiculous to say it. I will talk/rant to my therapist about it this week though and see if she has suggestions other than explaining it to my friend in the "When you said _____, I felt ____, and in the future please ______." For now I'm not thinking about it anymore.

Happier notes

I picked up the keys for my new PO Box! Number 2142, which is delightful as far as numbers go! The full address is up for a limited time (probably) under my profile and I've e-mailed it to those of you I have e-mail addresses for.

Also yesterday I had a wonderful time at my favorite winery in North Georgia and I will post some pictures soon.

I hope you all are doing well.

I'm late to the previous post about your friend. I am so sorry this has to happen... I have a friendship on the verge of fizzling out becoz of her insensitivity as well... sigh*

I'm glad things are looking up. *hugs*

Sorry about the dilema with your friend. I know how hard it is to come up with something to say. However, she doesn't seem to agonize over what she says to you, now, does she? She doesn't worry about how it will sound. Just food for thought.

On a brighter note!...... I just ordered a beautiful card for you and it should be there in a week's time! It's hand made, so it takes a little longer than regular. I hope you like it and it brings a smile to your face and I hope you get flooded with them:-)

Meghan you are so thoughtful! I have enjoyed your comments very much.

You make an excellent point that she really doesn't seem worry about what she says to me. I had not thought of it in that way before, thank you.
