After last week’s #MicroblogMonday post, I received a lot of comments from people relating to my situation; having a friendship suffer due to infertility. Most agreed, as I had suggested, that it might be time to let this one go. Since I published the post, I’ve really been thinking about this friendship; it’s been bothering me for a long time, that it’s withered to almost nothing. The last time my friend and I spent time together, I went to her house, I offered to come, I was the one who reached out (first to find out why she’d been giving me the cold shoulder, then to make plans). Since we still haven’t really reconnected I decided I owe us one last try, so I reached out once more, and we’re taking our kids to the park (near me this time) this afternoon. We’ll see how things go, and afterwards I’m going to let the chips fall where they may. At least I’ll know I gave it a shot. My rule of life is to take the path of least regrets, and I feel like I would regret not giving this friendship one more chance.
