women ! not mean girls but mean women
I have been crying, all night. what is it about the female species of the human race? I have been going to a patchwork group for 8 years now. I haven't been for about 6 weeks or so * due to the fact that I have have been feeling 'under the weather' so to speak and dealing with my mum and her wanting to get her funeral in order(that is very hard to deal with!) * and not one phonecall to see how I am. Yesterday, I decided to go along and honestly, it was awful, I felt like a social outcast. Most of the girls there were kind of cold and uninviting. They had even organised an outing for next week and didn't invite me. When I asked what was happening next week, they kind of mumbled and said they were going to a quilt shop..and I just left it. My heart hurt. i am always a phone call away for these women whenever they have something awful happen, I listen and I know I am not perfect but I try to never leave anyone out. Why do we do this kind of thing, why are we like this? why can't we just accept each other for who we are? Teenage girls can be horrible and nasty to each other but women in their 50's? Has it always been like this, down through the ages? or is it a new phenomena, with all our materialistic attitudes - that we have to be like this to make ourselves feel better? maybe it is time for me to move on..I just don't know. Now I know why my best friend is my husband.
