Day Nine

What She Wore: blue jeans; navy blue shirt with black velvet trim, pin-tucking, and a sort-of v-neck collar; black strappy sandals–I should just go out and bury those shoes so I stop wearing them so much.

I completely forgot that I’m supposed to be blogging every day. I’m not even sure what to write.

Today I was discussing a number of things with a friend of mine, and I realized that I am just too prideful. I don’t even think I realized it. I don’t mind apologizing if I know I’ve been wrong, but there’s a lot of gray out there. Sometimes, you should apologize just because someone else THINKS you’ve done something wrong. Just to clear the air. I might be in that situation right now. I feel like I’ve done everything I can to be supportive of a friend of mine, but through the grapevine I’m hearing that she doesn’t really think that I have been. Maybe something I said got taken the wrong way–I don’t know. So here I am, I know there’s a problem, and I’m avoiding it. My pride keeps me from calling or e-mailing, and just saying “I’m sorry.” Mainly, because I feel I’ve done the best I can, and I hate apologizing for doing my best.

Sorry for being so weird and vague–I really wasn’t planning on posting at all. I completely forgot, so this is what you get.

    I have a friend that I have tried to do things for to pull her out of her slump. She is bad off. Depressed. Drugged. Unemployed.
    She is unwilling to do anything to move forward. She wants help but apparently not mine. If I had a penis I might have made some headway with her.

    I walked away.
    Let her figure it out.
    I want to keep my sanity so I walked away.

    Does that make me a bad friend?
    In her eyes…yes.
    In the eyes of my other friends that know how much I tried….NO!

    Do I feel guilty. NO!

    Should you apologize? That’s your call.

    In my retirement, I am going to clean my house…that’s a 2 year job all by its self!! In February we are going to Hawaii. And a friend of mine said the local school was short of subs so that is an option for part-time if I want.
    Can you imagine that?? The Harlot in the Red Bra a sub??? I know it cracks me up!

    Tag!! Come read my blog for details.

    Do you know it was a tag from the mayor of Zwebbyville that led me to you??

    I love tags!!

  3. I agree. Sometimes you have to apologize even when you don’t think you need to. (How many times have I done this with the hubby?) Mainly because it is the other person’s opinion that they have been ‘wronged’. Their perception may not, in fact, be reality. BUT, to make some headway, sometimes you have to make the first move. Then you can hear the other side. Good luck with whatever you decide.
