I know many of us have been disappointed by friends during our grief. Have any of you done or said anything to these friends? Or do you just keep your distance? I have a close friend who I’ve always had all the deep convos with. So I foolishly assumed that she would be here for me during this tumultuous time in my life. Boy was I wrong! She sent me a care package shortly after I (suddenly) lost my mom in mid-May, but hasn’t asked me how I’m doing since then! She’ll text me random crap that has nothing to do with anything but never throws in a “how are you doing?“ it’s bizarre! It’s like she’s pretending this never happened. I’m having a hard time responding to the stuff she texts me (bc it really is pointless amid everything I’m experiencing—like her offices birthday party or her offices planned travels) and my husband thinks I should be honest with her about it. She’s one of my dearest friends and I’m so disappointed by her lack of anything! It’s hurtful and I’m not sure how to address it or if I should just leave it alone and have this awkwardness continue.
