One sided relationship

by Tricia Calta

I have a couple of girlfriends who have always been included in my plans and my husbands plans including their husbands. We’ve been friends for 25 years. They do not reciprocate. I know it doesn’t always have to be everyone together, but we are just left out. Recently I saw a fb post of my friends who had taken out my niece to a four hour lunch. They didn’t even consider to invite me. I think this is in bad taste. I contacted them letting them know this is probably the end of my relationship with them as it’s too hurtful to see that our friendship is one sided.

Dear Tricia,

Friendships can be complicated and not always even as they wind through time. If you would like to preserve the friendship, then you need to have a conversation with them to tell them how you feel. If, however, you are truly done with them, then you should let it be, as you have already begun the process of breaking away. Friendships in life are meant to make one feel a broader family. If that is not possible, then you need to move to a different circle.

Good luck with this.
