The other day my friend texted me saying that she was sad. She felt like she had lost a lot of friendships and was having boy problems. I told her to cheer up and that we would talk about it later.
After losing a lot of friends in the past few years it's made me realize that it isn't something to dwell on. Ever since having Carter I'm obviously not in the same place in life as most of my friends and I have come to be understanding that most of the time people don't necessarily want my baby tagging along(even though he's super cute, he has become very difficult to take places*).
It made me realize that there are a lot of things that you can't let get you down. Ever since writing my post the other day about getting my hopes up about something and basically being depressed the rest of the day, I have tried to not let myself get down about petty things. If a friend blows me off, they're gonna know I'm not happy about it, but I'm not gonna dwell on it.
My advice to people who are down right now: don't let it keep you down. If you are missing a friend-call them up. If you are unhappy in your relationship-end it, or work on it until you're happy. If you feel lonely or bored-go for a run or a walk, or go work out! Things don't have to stay the way they are and you don't have to be unhappy. Try to look on the bright side :)
*Carter is now 11 months old(crazy, right?!?!?) which means he is officially trying to kill himself 24-7. Putting anything and everything in his mouth, climbing onto perilous ledges and hitting my dog that likes to bite. And when I make him stop doing these things he usually screams at me. So when he's in a mood for screaming(which is a lot lately because his nap schedule is anything but on schedule) it makes public outings... difficult.
