I just expressed some feelings to a friend and got a reaction that was so totally unexpected I'm stunned.
I didn't expect them to necessarily agree with the way I was feeling, but I was basically told to shut up and mind my own business unless there was something I could do to change it. It brought me to tears (and still is) because I was made to feel like I'm nothing but a rumor monger by even telling them about it.
I am in shock. As each day goes by I'm seeing more and more about this person that just makes me wonder why I am so attached. As they say, people change and in the 4-1/2 years I've known this person there has definitely been a change. I just wish I was a stronger person and could stand up to them the way they stand up to me.
