Since having Cameron, my entire social scene has changed. I get it. I am the only one of my friends who has a baby, and my flexibility and schedule are a bit different. A lot different. I can't just take off for the weekend on a ski trip. I can't make it to Boston for birthdays. I can't always grab a drink on a Friday night. Nor do I always want to! My priorities have changed. My energy level has changed. My bank account has changed. A LOT.
I've changed. But, I love me. I love my family. I love my son. I love my Friday nights at home with Chad. And I still love my friends, but I don't always feel the same respect.
I wish my friends could understand that. I totally get it that I signed up for this. Not my friends. But is it too much to expect a little leniency on their behalves? I feel like we have an awful disease that nobody wants to touch. Not really, but kind of...
I've started my Arbonne business and I am doing a great job, but there's no support from my friends - those girls who I thought would be my #1 cheerleaders through life. They always have something else going on - something more important. Instead it's my newer friends. My long-distant friends who live in different states. My friends with babies. My friends who understand my life. I guess this is one of those chapters in my life that make you realize who will always be there. It makes me super sad, but I get it. My priorities have changed, so why wouldn't theirs?
Have you been through this? Have your friends changed since having babies?
