I know I may catch criticism for this one, but here goes:
My best friend from grade school has been making a series of bad decisions. Being her best friend, this does affect me. She dropped out of college because "the people in her program were weird". We were living together, and she asked to pay less rent because her job didn't pay her enough. I conceded. She moved out earlier than when our lease was up to save money (sticking me with the full rent for 2 months).
She moves home, and everytime I call her she's yelling at her mom like a 15 year old. She starts dating this guy who has tons of baggage/history. Fine, not my business but he is creepy when I hang out with him and I'm worried about his intentions. Anyway, I keep my mouth shut. About a year ago, she calls me frantic, she's possibly pregnant and shes freaking out because they have no money and she isnt ready. I help her along, give her advice, and turns out shes not pregnant. Everyone's relieved. I talk to her about it after the fact, and she's talking like a teenage girl who slept through health class. I get firm with her and say "dont have unprotected sex if you cant be a mom right now" and she says "well you know how it is, condoms arent sexy and i dont like taking birth control". I again tell her be careful.
Low and behold, shes pregnant now! Yay....but I'm not happy for her. I feel like shes being totally reckless and selfish. She tells me and I have to react happy and it was killing me. I ask her what they are going to do (another day) and their solution was her and her boyfriend and her boyfriends son move into her parent's home...in the basement.
Now the shower comes up. Her mother and sister are throwing her a shower. I am helping with decorations. I looked at her registry and there is ton of EXPENSIVE items on there. This infuriates me.
Along with all of the changes that have hurt our friendship, now I'm just fed up. I feel like her friendship has just been grandfathered in because of how long we've known each other. Emotionally, I've given up. But it's so hard to tell her that or try to let the friendship just fade away.
Now that I'm pregnant as well, she's making plans on our babies growing up together. I don't want that to happen. That's about it.
