So, just realizing that this matters.. I'm not sure why I fooled myself for a short time into believing that it doesn't??? I guess I never realized it before because I've always been around people who share my same socio-economic status. But seems friendships, no matter how strong they seemed, will dwindle and friends who are in the higher economic statuses will flock together? Is this a reality, or no? Just wondering if anyone else has dealt with this? It kind of hurts, i guess.. I've always been a little uncomfortable with where me and my family "ARE" in life, and I'm constantly working toward a better life for us... but this kind of makes me feel a little worse.. like not good enough.. I don't know.. just wanted to vent somewhere, I guess.. Thanks ladies!
