Shanti Posted June 30, 2008 Share Posted June 30, 2008 Hi everyone Just copied this from a reply I made to Wayne re loss of motivation. Just thought it might be relevant to some of you: I think we all have felt sometimes that some people around us think everything is now okay with us because we look okay. I've been really down about that particular subject all weekend. Watched a teary DVD on Friday night and realised that people who got in touch last Xmas with me, were filled in about the seriousness of what had just happened to me, expressed all these oh dears etc, and most of them have never phoned back since! These are people I thought were close friends. These are people who in the past I've held some of their hands for months on end whilst they we're going through stuff of their own. Big learning curve. Sometimes I wonder if I really knew some of them. Only a very few people have been there for me. I think in the final analysis: some people I thought of as close friends, were actually social friends and that when I could no longer join in certain social activities with them, they disappeared (out of sight, out of mind?). Or conversely they were people who I helped a lot through their bad times but either don't see or don't want to see that I might need support now. Don't worry anyone on here though, I've got my head around it and have bounced back up this morning. Just life isn't it - sometimes. Has anyone else noticed this?
