I have a best friend, she's awesome but her and her husband have a questionable marriage. I feel like every time we talk she's got some kind of a bitxh about her husband, oh he didn't do this today, he fell asleep when he got home from work today, he only texted me from work twice today and blah blah blah, stupid petty things for the most part. For one it's the most irritating thing in the world listening to her constantly complain, if you're that unhappy tell him to shape his shit up and do something about it. Don't drag the kids with you on the weekends, tell him he's watching the kids and just go. But two, when my husband left for six months it actually started to upset me. I know it's trivial, but all you do is complain about your husband and tell him to leave you alone cuz your mad or whatnot, and here I would give anything for five minutes with my husband, you complain about him not calling you enough while he's at work, I've vigilantly got my phone on me and on loud at all times at the small chance he'll get to call me once in a blue moon. I want to tell her to just shut-up but I don't want to sound as bitxhy as I feel. How do you deal with complaining friends who just don't get it?
So when she called today, about our kids play date later and to tell me her husband will be home late again, I told her that i have a lot of stress right now and would appreciate if she could be more positive. She told
me that I'm being selfish and the world doesn't revolve around me. That just because my husband is away doesn't mean that her life is suddenly perfect. I thought I was being polite, but f@$k that. I hung up and really am not in the mood. I'm supposed to go over there for a kids play date tonight but I'm over it. I bend over backwards for her, to watch her kids, help her out financially and act as her venting booth constantly, but I'm the selfish one. Totally makes sense.
