Confrontation Jitters

Later today I get to have a confrontation with a friend who’s pissed off at me for something that happened a long time ago–almost a year. I’m very very sad that this is going down and also very pissed off that this friend let it fester within for 10 months before giving us the opportunity to talk it out. It feels like I will have to bite my tongue and apologize profusely in order to make it better, if that is at all possible. But I also feel unfairly judged and that has my hackles up. It’s hard to make new friends for a freak like me. Apparently, it’s hard to keep them because I’m a freak.

Damn. I have a sick feeling in my tummy because of all this.

EDIT: My friend called today, an hour before our appointed meeting time, and canceled. My friend had reasons for canceling, which may or may not have been true. Now I get to wait at least another two weeks before we have another opportunity to work through this issue. I’m kind of tired of having this hanging over my head.

    I’m sorry you’re in a tough spot. I’m sure you and your friend will hash it out in a mutually respectful way, each making your needs known.

    well, you know my position. You apologized once, I think you should make sure she knows what makes you angry about the situation.
