It’s that time of life. I look around and it seems as though every one of my friends is engaged and getting married. It’s a pretty crazy time and I couldn’t be happier for them. Especially my friends/room mates from college. They are some of the sweetest gals I know and it was so nice to see their relationships start and then flourish into marriages.
That being said, I can’t help but feel a sadness when my only window into their special day is through facebook. In their pictures I see all of our friends, having laughs again, enjoying just being together. It’s like our time in college all over again. Only this time I got left out. I’ve met the guys, swooned over the rings, talked wedding details, and still I’m left out.
I don’t mean to sound like a selfish whiner and I’m not looking for any sort of apology. I would be more than understanding of their reasoning behind it. I guess most of my feeling this way has more to do with the fact that I clearly thought we were closer than we really are. It’s not a happy feeling regardless. It kinda makes me wonder how many other friends of mine I’m not as close to.
I think I just needed to get that off my chest.
