It is one thing to be proud of yourself for your accomplishments and another thing to be prideful irritating, and putting yourself of a pedestal. I know this girl who is in college and she finds it necessary to post EVERY grade on EVERY assignment all summer long on facebook, copy emails from professors and post them, update date she has complete 10 out of 18 classes, and 1 out of 4 residencies. Every time I log into facebook she is the first 3-4 status updates I see. It’s annoying. Then she’ll say stuff like “any of you moms out there not continuing your education need to do so and not make excuses because “if I can do it with a child who has diabetes and a husband who deploys frequently then there is no reason you can’t either” I am in school too, I have two small children, my husband deploys frequently, and I have straight A’s and have been on the dean’s list the past 3.5 years, but am I posting that on facebook? No because I don’t need everyone’s attention I am proud of my accomplishments but I think she’s is just being arrogant. I got so fed up with all her post because that I deleted her and she calls my husband (our husbands are friends) and asked him why I deleted her? Why?? Because you fucking annoy me!
The other person I am beyond frustrated with is supposedly my best friend of the past 10 years. Every time I try to call her she sends me to voicemail, when I text her she responds with she is just super busy (if she bothers to respond at all), but then she’ll be on facebook ignore my chat msgs and send me game invites. Last month I called her out on ignoring me asked her if she was mad at me she said no and apologized for ignoring me and asked me to forgive her for being a shitty friend lately. Well guess what has been going on for the past two weeks again? I texted her this morning and just told her I was done wasting energy trying to keep in touch when obviously she doesn’t care if we remain friends or not, she didn’t even respond.
To sum it up be proud of yourself but get of your damn high horse! And so called best friend it hurts to know that you are too busy to talk to your best friend but “words with friends” is a top priority in your life.
