Have you supported a friend today?
Do you ever feel like your internet friends are more there for you than your “real life” friends?
I was thinking about this again last night (for the 1000th time since starting this blog and finding all of you amazing people who encourage me and support me!) and it struck me that it’s my internet friends have been bugging me for pictures of the house, updates on my weightloss & fertility issues, etc… but from my “friends” who live down the street – not a peep.
As a caveat, I do have two new girlfriends that I’ve been hanging out with recently (though they’ve both been out of town for most of the last month), and I really hope these girls and their significant others end up being great couple friends of ours.
However, of my long-time so-called “good” girlfriends that live in the area…not one of them has bothered to stop by the new house to check it out (keep in mind I live in a tiny town of under 1000 people – so it would literally be maximum five blocks out of their way). I mean, it was a huge step for us to buy a house. Huge. We’ve been putting in countless hours of work on it every single night. It’s not like these girls don’t know where I’m at. Our guy friends have all stopped by multiple times to check it out throughout the whole remodel process – they’ve even helped us move! It makes us feel good that the guys are excited for us & want to see our new little home. I just wish my girlfriends would bother to do the same.
Maybe I shouldn’t care about the girls not stopping by. Maybe they just don’t give a crap about houses and remodeling. Even so, I wish they did…if for no reason other than to support a friend.
Thank god for my internet peeps – I’d be lost without you!
