i'm feeling a little blown off by my friends. do you think i am right to feel this way? here's the thing. we're all working so i know that we're all busy now. it's much harder to go out because i don't have the weekends off. i know that my schedule messes up things for us. so whenever we have a get-together, i would just file a leave for work. my days off are weekdays so i don't expect them to take a leave of absence for me, even if i do it for them. so here's the thing, a couple of weeks ago there was a holiday that falls on my days off. i also have to go to work on holidays, unless it's my day off so i've been looking forward to that holiday for weeks. but at the last minute, they all canceled on me. so it feels like they all blew me off. they don't even seem to know that i took it pretty hard. do you think i have to be right to feel mad at them? it's just that for me, i expected that they would like to spend some time together since all of us didn't have work that day. and we agreed a long time ago that when these opportunities come up, we have to grab it. so for me, i have a right to feel mad at them. would you agree with me if this happened to you?

True, friends are our real companion and we can find the true friends at our distress.

Well i understand the way you feel. Here how we have to manage time which is a big art too. Becoz if we manage this time, we can manage anything at all.

if they really are your real friends,they will try to understand your situation.we all are busyy in our own lives,really far different from what we are like before.instead of being mad to them,just chill.you will feel more stressed out when you keep on thinking about them,that's life.someone has to understand for some time and some have to just let it cool down for a while.don't be harsh on yourself,my friend!
