Is it wrong of me to feel this way?

I dont have a boyfriend or a husband I am going to be a single mom. My friends have boyfriends or husbands and everytime they have a problem with them they come to me. I dont mind because that is what friends do is listen to your friends and let them vent. Well I dont have a car or way to get anywhere so I sit at home and so stuff around the house and take care of stuff that is needed to be done. Well when I want to talk to them because I am feeling down they wont even make the time of day and they just ignore me. I am starting to feel resentment. Is this wrong? My friend is also pregnant with her second and I am with my first and everyone is showing my friend excitement but no one shows any interest in my pregnancy. I want someone to share the excitement with but my friends dont seem to care. Is it wrong for me to feel like this or am I just being a baby about it?

  • If your friends are close to you then you need to speak up. Don't let them walk all over you, if there are true friends they will hear you out when you tell them that you need help as well.

  • I have talked to them but it seems like they are dumb as a board sometimes. I am the one out of us that is out spoken and doesnt let anyone walk all over me. For some odd reason though when I have talked to them it seems to go in one ear and out the other.

  • you have to tell ppl what you need from them. Many have their own lives and assume you have things taken care of. Tell them what you need. As for enthusiasm, not sure how to get that out of ppl except to continue to show it yourself (for yourself not always for them.) It's ok to be a bit selfish.
