The key is to fake it
Wednesday, August 21, 2013
I realized this today: i have nobody. I have no friends (or at least people I hang with regularly). Nobody calls me to go have a glass of wine. Nobody calls me to have play dates. Nobody calls me to go hang at the bar. Wait. Nobody calls me.
Why? This is what I ask myself.
My answer? I'm a realist. I'm not going to sugar coat everything. I have the right to disagree, it's called a great debate but it doesn't mean I feel less about someone when we debate.
But apparently everyone around me seems to think if you debate, or have a difference of opinion, you're argumentative and bitter and unhappy and must be unfriended.
Have we as adults become so self centered, we don't see outside the box of what makes us unique? Have we become so selfish that if someone disagrees with us they are banished from our world? Yes. And No.
Clearly I have things I need to work on as a person to be a better friend, get new friends, and think outside my box.
One thing I've learned from our baseball parents? Fake it. They all sit around sucking up to each other and they are held on a pedistal. Maybe I should start faking it to be wanted.........
