Remember that email I sent to that "friend" of mine about trying to have a heart to heart discussion about the bully situation? She called me and started shouting at me right away. I couldn't believe how confrontational she became. I held my ground, but I didn't get nasty. I had to run to a birthday party right after that heated discussion. I hate that my kids had to see me get upset while I was on the phone. It was tough to pretend to be happy at the party. Why couldn't she be more mature or civil on the phone? I don't know where all her venom came from. I try so hard to be nice to everyone. She wants to turn me into the villain. I never expected this kind of reaction from her. I feel like an idiot trying to protect her feelings all this time. She doesn't seem to worry about mine. Even though I know she is wrong to act this way, I can't help but feel hurt. Why can't I let things roll of my back? I'm having trouble going to sleep. I feel emotionally drained.
Will all this block tension ever end?
I'm so glad that I have all of you. Your support really means everything to me.
