I'm such a confusion of emotion. I'm understanding; I'm saddened; I'm angry.
One of my longest friends called me last night to tell me that she can't be in the wedding anymore. She just had a baby and can't imagine leaving the baby or traveling with the baby and financially it hurts her. While I understand these things, truly I do, I am really sad that she won't be by my side. Our group of friends will be missing one. I'm angry because I feel like these are things she can manage but chooses not to (though I am well aware that I am not in her shoes and cannot judge). And... overall, I feel really sad that our friendship isn't as important to her than I thought.
No advice needed, just wanted to say it all out loud.
