Hey all, I'm new to the group. I woke up feeling crummy after a weird day yesterday, and I realize that I need to make some new friends. I need to get out more but I don't know how to do it, being a single working mom...
I just started a new job with my company and I couldn't be happier. It's interesting work...it pays more than enough (for once!!!)...and it looks like it's going to open a lot of doors for me. I hadn't expected to change jobs so soon, but it's just how it worked out.
I had moved to the southern Maine area, last summer, for work; I left my friends and family behind and there are some days that I miss them a whole lot. But at the same time, there were few opportunities back home and I would never get ahead. We've been mostly happy with the move, but we have our days.
I am finding that in situations like this, where there is a lot of change, you really can discover who your true friends are...
Sometimes I feel like I have "friends" who are punishing me for being successful. If only they could walk a mile in my shoes (divorced from an abusive husband, struggled from job to job, broke as hell, etc etc) and then try to tell me what I am doing is wrong.
I guess it just goes to show that sometimes people can be really rotten to each other. I suppose this is more of a rant than anything.
