I have a 6 month old son who has changed our world. We are the typical 1st time parents....so all about our LO! Unfortunatly our friends dont care! I understand fully that they just dont get it or have a clue what it is like....but is that any reason to treat us so terrible?
The friends I am speaking of are 2 husband and wife couples that we introduced to each other and they quickly bonded...great for them. But now I feel they have both turned on my husband and I. They have not been there for us, got upset when my husband couldnt play softball with them when our son had just been born. One of the wives, the wife of my husbands Best friends for over 15yrs, started blatenly ignoring me when we were all together. I made it a point to not talk about our son and she still ignored me so I asked her what was going on and if there was anything I could do to changes things, she started insulting me and falt out sadi I dont care and dont have anything to talk to you about....I was clam and respectful towards her the whole time...so I just said this isnt healthy and I am cutting her out of my life....Well now all of the sudden the other couple is upset with us and not speaking to us with no warning or anything. We are unable to make it to thier weeding because it is 10hours away and would cost us $450 to attend, I thought they understood but apparently they are so upset with us about it they ignore our calls and havent spoken to us in over a week.
Oh I forgot to mention the wife that told me she didnt care, her husband is the God father to our child. He acts as though he is not honored and could careless as well! It sucks! I should mention that hey have had a miscarriage and we have tried very hard to be understanding and there for them...but it has got to the point were Im like that is no excuss to be disrespectfull and plian hatefull towards us...if you cant deal then tell us...why is honesty so hard? I feel as though they have strongly influenced the other couple....when I look back this has happened before to them but we were the bff couple and her other friends were getting the terrible treatment....
It hurts me so bad, I feel like an emotional horrder. I am christian so I have been praying about it am trying to move on but it keeps me up at night and just flat out hurts! Any advice?
