I just write two days ago to my best friend about my success and was happy to share with her.But today when I read a email from her, she even doesn't mention nothing about my little succes.I was kind of disappointed, she didn't even write vew nice words to me about that.so , have you ever been disappointed from your best friend?How did you react?Did you mention to her/him anything?

Your friend is probably jealous of your success, if that's the case she is no friend to you, and I wouldn't share anything else with her. Did she think you wouldn't notice that she did not mention about your news? That's jealousy right there.

If she was really your friend, she'd be happy for you no matter how small your success is, I still think it's jealousy.

Please don't feel disappointed. Actually sometimes I found females are likely to be jealous. So please leave it alone and be happy with your success.

Sometimes people are just busy and if a friend has been supportive many times in the past we can overlook such an omission on occasion. However, with a new friend, that sends up a red flag. Sometimes people like us better when we are "down" and become jealous when things are going right for us. I probably wouldn't say anything but if it happens again, I would begin to notice. Oh, and congratulations on your success!

Maybe your friend is not in a good mood or facing a bir problem which having seek a solution to solve it. Or maybe she is jealous on your success. Don't think so much on it because they are not so happy on our successful. I faced it before when i still in colegge time. when our exam result is out, i was pass but my friend fail. She said i am clever, but she still need resit. her voice look not so happy on it. But i just tell her study hard on next time, so that she can pass it.

I would not worry about it. Do you want her to give you a pat on the back and inflate your ego even more? Maybe your friend is not successful in her life and thinks that everything is against there, and she considers your mentioning this and that is rubbing it in. I consider that nothing to be disappointed in. Now if your friend said she was going to do something like stop smoking or not eat candies or not go out with that bum you warned her against, and if she did one or all of those things, then that would be grounds for disappointment, but her not praising you up to high heaven and patting you on the back would not be grounds for disappointment.

It could be that your friend maybe has her mind on other things, or this slipped her mind. Maybe not intentionally. I know I have in the past overlooked something and when it was brought to my attention, I apologized and tried to make up for it. You might try asking, did you get the email/letter I sent you about _ _ _ _ ? See if it will jog her memory about it. Don't take it too seriously, she probably had a lot on her mind.

I can understand how that would be upsetting to you it would be to me as well. I have also been upset with a friend she forgot my birthday or if she didnt she sure didnt mention it. I did not come right out and ask her about it I just made a comment about something that I did on my birthday last week and then it hit her she said i am so sorry happy late birthday and she took me out to lunch. it wasnt that i wanted anything i just wanted to be recognized as i am sure you do as well so i would just casually bring up something about your success and she if they respond. maybe they are fighting some sort of jealousy?
