I wasn't going to post but it's been 24hrs and I'm still upset so thought good to get some perspective.
We have a couple who we're been friends with for about 7 years. We went to each other's weddings, the boys catch up for beers/footy occasionally and we have a few mutual friends so they are part of our 'group'.. I'm not overly close to the wife but we all get together for special occasions...Or so we thought..
They came to DH's 40th last month and all was well... Just seen on Facebook that the wife had a birthday event and we didn't even get an invite. It was only bowls but to see photos of our friends and kids celebrating hurt a lot. I feel bad for my DH as I know he's feeling it too.
I sent a polite message to the wife to ask if I'd done anything and she sent one back to say sorry we weren't I invited, it was last minute and don't take it personally.
I was excluded as teenager and spiral into self doubt and anxiety when this happens tho and was just wondering what other people do when this happens? How do you cope with the confidence knock? TIA
