I was supposed to go to a friend’s house for Thanksgiving dinner. When I said I may be bringing my kids, I was uninvited. This is the second time this happened with this particular friend.
I get that my kids are a handful. Believe me, I get it, but I can control them and they won’t be tearing up her house. They are capable of behaving.
Her excuse was that her girlfriend’s parents are coming for the first time and she wants it to be all about them. Which, whatever.
I just don’t know what to think. I’ve been friends with this woman for years. I don’t know if I should just step back or sever the friendship entirely. The problem is that my entire circle of friends sort of centers around this woman and her house, so if I end the friendship, I lose everyone.
My therapist wonders why I can’t trust people, why I don’t like to let anyone help me or let anyone in. This? This is why.
