Would you try to hold on to these friendships ..or would you just let them go?
Long story short , me and my daughter were going to move two hours away closer to family , because we didn't have anyone here (or so we thought)..i have been having a lot of problems with my daughter lately and i needed physical/emotional support...
Things unfolded and as it turns out the guy that i had been seeing for a while, fessed up about his feelings for me ..and even though he was willing to commute back and forth..me and my daughter chose to stay right where we are for many reasons.
If you want the full story here is the post.
In any case , two of what i used to think as my closest friends have stopped talking to me. They both expressed that they thought it was a bad move on my part and that they think i will regret it , i told them both that i respect their views but that this is something that i wanted as well as my daughter.
It has been a month since i made the decision...and i have only talked to them MAYBE twice , and it was short ..two sentence convo's and that was it.
Im torn...i don't understand why they are backing away from me like they are...i have the support that i was looking for here , my future fiance is wonderful and our relationship is one that i have never had before ..the difference? Its a HEALTHY relationship!
I would have stood right by them and been happy for them if they were in my situation...i am not too sure if i should keep fighting to maintain these friendships or to just let them slowly decrease....
