I am unaware of the theology regarding friendships. I did read the Catechism part about it; never read St. Thomas Aquin.
Since a while, I’m running into ‘bad luck’ with my friendships.
2 recent examples:
- I was invited today to a dinner to someone’s else place. Like 1 hour before going, I contacted the person: no answer. A few hours later, checking the person’s Facebook: the person was on a trip outside the country and was putting pictures from the plane point of view, and so on.
The trip was supposed to be for tomorrow. I could but guess they had an earlier departure.
- Another example:
yesterday, I was supposed to go to some hiking with a group of person. The person who invited me never called me.
Today, I talked to that person and when asking why I did not get a call (for the hiking), the answer was “why ?”. Sounding like “I forgot about you”.
Results: I do have to fight against the depression, kind of, or malaise or whatever you’re calling that that resulting from the above.
I would say that putting the whole here on this forum is a way for me to express what I feel. (I will cry later ! HAHA).
Like most people, I do need to have social relationships and social activities.
Any hints are the welcome ! Thanks.
