Sometimes I'm the Bad Friend

I can prattle on and on here about how I feel left out or how I don't always feel like my friends take an interest in Isabella and I, but if I'm looking truthfully at myself, I can say that I'm not always the best friend I can be.  I don't always reach out and pick up the phone.  It's easy to say, "Oh, she doesn't call me."  But do I ever call her?  I don't always text/call/facebook someone back right away even if I have the time.  Sometimes I just don't want to talk.  And when I do call someone back it's usually at a time that's only convenient for me.  I'm not always the one jumping to plan things.

I wouldn't say I'm a terrible friend.  I'm just not always the friend I'd like to have.  I guess the road goes both ways.  To have a friend you have to be a friend.

I know exactly how you feel, and I have felt that way a ton, I was working 7 days a week, and then wondering why my friend hasnt called me. When did i stop to think when can i call her. I understand where your coming from.
Friends understand. :)

I could have wrote this post. I guess I am just lucky that the few girlfriends I have understand and are the same way :)

I get this. I am one of those friends that rarely calls but will gladly talk if you call me. I feel bad, but life is just so busy. I am your newest follower.

I'm stopping by and following you from Mom Blog Monday Blog Hop. I hope you'll check out my blog Frazzled Mama at and follow me back.

I'm one of those friends too. It really makes you stop and think how you can be a better friend. Thanks.

Don't be so hard on yourself; you're a busy mum and time is always against us. I'm just the same, terribly unsociable and always hoping "they" will come to me.
