So it inevitably happens.
You take the first hit from a friend regarding your split.
There’s been been many well meaning yet critical family members.
But this was the first time I reached out to have my hand slapped away.
It was explained away that they were going to remain neutral and wait til the dust settled.
How nice for them?
Am I wrong to expect a friend to stick by in the times that suck.
At first I was nice and understanding of their decision.
But then I thought about it.
It was nice to know to know that they would be a friend during the hard times (the hospital) as long as it wasn’t awkward. It didn’t require a decision.
I guess these is no neutral in this.
We can’t pretend there is.
