Friendships lost and found.

I admit I am into my mommy forum. But as is bound to happen in large groups of women... DRAMA. The Internet is such a huge place, we hide behind screen names and cutesy avatars and pretend to be "Minxy Mimi" or "Peaches and Cream" or whomever we feel like being for the day. I always strive to be who I am, but sometimes my personality and posts are not taken as they are written.

Drama happens, and in most cases, its never one persons fault, its rarely clear cut, crystal clear or beyond the shadow of a doubt... life would be much simpler if it were. Personalities, priorities, and just plain old differences of thought, opinion and how we respond to things make us drift apart where we once were getting closer.

What we are left with is nagging doubts, a feeling of being left behind, a feeling of sadness knowing that friends we have shared so much with are now in some '"Never Never Land"... part of another board, making new friends (maybe cooler ones) and growing away from us.

In my heart of hearts I know that people who have moved on have made mistakes such as I have, have been right and have been wrong and are maybe feeling the same way I do. Although I hesitate to wish ill on anyone else, I wish for all of the friends that have moved on to know this feeling, to know that friends are worth fighting for and fighting with, as long as we do it together.

((Hugs)) to all that have been left behind and all that have moved on. All of you changed my life, even if its in the most minute way. I thank you all.

I started on a mommy board when I was preggers with Essie... so over 10 years ago... I think our board has had MAJOR issues probably 4 times, and each time a faction of the group has broken off, or we've lost people. I always hated that... I miss some of those people... I wonder about them, how they are, what they're doing.. how their kiddos are... *sigh*

aww, that was sweet mimi. I think that i am so over it, that to be honest, i just cant miss anyone anymore. Doesnt mean i dont value my friendships, doesnt mean i dont apprieciate people, just means that reality snaps back and it just isnt that important as it once was for me. In fact, it reminds me of how temporary online friendships are.
