I totally said I was going on leave right? Well guess what I have some things to get off of my chest.
YOU KNOW WHAT REALLY GRINDS MY GEARS?
All of those “OMG, I can’t wait til I meet aunty’s baby!” “We’re going to do so much baby stuff while you’re pregnant!” “I can’t wait until your shower, I better be invited!”
Well let me tell you something sis..
I DON’T NEED YOUR COMPANY.
Plain and simple.
These are the “friends” who say they’re going to be there every step of the way. The ones who only hit you up to go out, or in my case when they need something from me. Keep your energy, and your lack luster gesture to be apart of my kid’s life. (which I am sure you weren’t planning on doing anyway.)
They honestly say you don’t know who your real friends are until something drastic happens in your life. That is 100000% true. I learned that during my first pregnancy, my wedding, and this pregnancy. Everyone wants to be apart of an event, but they don’t show up when it counts?
Seriously, how many of ya’ll were planning on coming to the crib after I dropped this load to see if I needed a break? Or maybe, bring us dinner? But, ya’ll are the first ones begging for a baby shower invite. I honestly don’t have the energy for it.
I don’t have a large group of friends, but the few that I keep close I can honestly say that 5% of them have been making the effort to show me some love.
I get it, people have lives and other obligations, but let me tell you the type of friend I am.
If you need me, I am there. No matter what. It doesn’t matter if I am home, at work, or wherever, I will make sure I etch out some time for you. If you invite me to something you better believe I am trying my best to be there. It sucks because I feel like that same energy isn’t reciprocated back to me.
It’s cool though, because at the end of the day I’ll be fine. However, you can keep your “Can I have an invite to the shower” ass away from me.
