I went to see some friends for New year’s. I don’t see these people nearly as often since I moved to another part of town. When we get together, we usually exchange gifts. Well… the woman works at a hotel and she told me I was the first person she though of when the hotel was replacing all the coffee makers in the room. She got me 2 of them and a whole bunch of the coffee they leave in the room for guests.
These people are low income and I thanked them but deep down I am hurt. Not hurt by her actions, I understand her financial situation and her other priorities. I also understand the type of friendship we have does not call for more.
I am simply hurt because there is NO relatinship in my life where I am spoiled. Where I can just sit back and let someone else do something nice for me. Anytime someone fixes something in my home for me, I but them a gift. I have no friend who would do it for free because we have such a close friendship it is just part of it.
I just wish every once in a while I could be made to feel special by someone other than my mother
