“It has been said, ‘time heals all wounds.’ I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.”—Rose Kennedy (via anditslove)
I saw someone from my past today. A friend and I were going to lunch while he and his friends were making disparaging remarks to some women as they walked past the pub they were sitting outside eating at. It’s always nice to see people from your past in a wonderful light such as that.

This is a little black and white, don’t you think? I mean, you don’t have ANYTHING in common with your friends just because they have a baby and you don’t? Seems really one sided and a little unfair.
But I can be unfair and black and white. It’s me. I really don’t have anything in common with the people I have known that have had kids. That doesn’t mean I pushed them away, rather the opposite. I got left out when they do things with people who have kids, because I don’t understand the kid thing. I get that they have other stuff more important going on and you grow apart. In my experience once a friend has kids they move of and gravitate to people with kids and not their single friends. But like I said, that’s my experience and not everyones.
Okay, I’m sorry. I admit it. When you get married and have a baby (or in some cases just have a baby) I have nothing in common with you anymore. You can’t (I hope) take the baby out and I don’t want to listen about your baby and how it does baby things. Sure I love my nieces and nephews but they are my family.
I know. I’m a horrible person but our relationship is going to turn into the kind where you only see each other in passing or at a random lunch - hopefully without the small child you know own. My apologies you grew up and got knocked up and I didn’t.
