Dear …

It’s strange that no matter how hard it is for me to lose friends, I eventually lose them, or I can say some of them, not just one … some.

Recent incident: happened with Noha, she is now mad at me and she doesn’t talk to me. Although we work at the same company, that was because last Monday when we were supposedly all invited to the cocktail dinner, she asked me “why are you dressed like that” (formal), so I thought she wasn’t invited, andI know she is so sensitive so I didn’t want to hurt her feelings so I didn’t answer I tried to change the subject and when she left my office I called Dalia as she was the one who initially told us about the dinner and asked her “how come Noha is not invited, she doesn’t know anything about the dinner”, she answer “no she knows, but she saidshe is not in a mood”…. and till now she is still upset.

Another incident, two years ago, a friend of mine just decided to set me up with her cousin, so
the first impression was ok, but after that we were supposed to meet in an outing with some other friends, I went and I found out that he is a smoker, I know it sounds silly, but it’s a huge problem for me, so I saw him smoking and that was a turn off for me, so after that she called to tell me that it went great and that he is asking about my feedback, I didn’tknow what to say but I couldn’t lie… I tried to communicate it in a nice way and I don’t think I commited a crime … everyone has things that can’t be tolerated, so it’s my thing. and I couldn’t hide it and say I will ask him to quit because I have no right asking him that unless he wanted to … and there were other things that I didn’t complain about on the contrary I tried to be supportive as I truely believe that …

“Not everything that can be counted counts and not everything that couts can be counted”

Anyway, she hasn’t talked to me till two weeks ago, I was surprised to find her finally calling me … but she was different. and later on I discovered that she was asking about the vacancies at my company.

last one, happened to me without even knowing the reason, that was Marwa, my friend from college, I believe she is married now, she didn’t invite me to her wedding and she no longer calls or asks about me.

On the other hand I still have dear friends that I do hope to always have…
