im still angry.....the day of the funeral, she sent me an email, she did ask how it went but then spent the next 3 paragraphs detailing an incident at her sons daycare, how he had a cold , blah blah etc etc....
seriously could she have not waited til at least the following day to ramble on about her life rather than THE day of the funeral..i find it such such poor taste and manners..im feeling so over her right now....i saw so many ppl behave with such compassion yet she has been the one person who has been so thoughtless thru all of this....maybe this is her true colors....im extremely unimpressed. Just venting.
Umm wtf....maybe send her an email back and ask if SHE would also like an email from you on the day of HER mum or dads funeral and you can outline some petty crap going on in your life.
Yeah, this person has the sensitivity of a parsnip...
Thanks..i sometimes think im being too emotional about this but i just want to run a mile from her right now....honestly i cannot bring myself to have contact with her right now....zero class in my book.
I don't think you are being too emotional. I think that your feelings are really vali. Is she the kind of person to run away from uncomfortable feelings? Being there for a friend is hard, when you can't do anything to take the pain away and the desire to not face it or bluster through and talk about anything but the elephant in the room is pretty strong. But....as an adult and as your friend, it would be the right thing to do to support you and to realise that her discomfort with the situation (if that is what is happening for her) doesn't hold a candle to your greif.
I have lost my parents and I know how very important the support of your friends is at such a time. I am honestly surprised by how many people have said they wouldn't go to a friends parents funeral. I go to my friends parents funerals and they came to mine and it is a small but very meaningful gesture.
So very sorry for your loss, and also sorry that an important friendship has not given you what your need at this time. .
