Your Friends Are Not Always Right

I had a truly crappy weekend.

I was talking with Pixie via email, she very kindly offered to help me with something and we were in the very beginning stages of it. I was thrilled, and I told one of my friends about it.

And got lit into.

I'm immature, I don't think things through, what the h*ll am I trying to do? Do I really hate my life that much? If you do this you'll crush your parents hearts, everyone you know will be so disappointed...On and on and on... I felt horrible. I cried, and I never cry.

So I emailed Pixie and thanked her, and called it off.

And I really regret that, I do. Because, after giving myself more time to think, I know my friend is wrong about a lot of what she said.

But what's done is done, and my opportunity with Pixie and her help has passed.

In conclusion, I am a moron. And that's the worst part of it.


  1. I'm sure your opportunity has not passed. You shouldn't let that friend make you feel bad about whatever you're talking about. If you now know she is wrong, it's not too late to go back and try again with your project.

  2. Candice,

    While I know that my friend was wrong about a lot of what she said, there was some truth to it too. And the fact that I let her opinion sway me like that just makes me understand that I really need to be on firm ground for myself before I go running off half-cocked on some things.

    I'm taking it as a lesson and (hopefully) learning from it.
