that I'm being shut out. I've called a friend with whom I used to do a lot of things and have left several messages. No return phone call. Our friendship went down hill after I revealed that my wife and I were having problems. I just didn't feel like hiding it anymore. Maybe I was too honest but whatever the reason, there is very little of our old friendship left. I know that it's time to make amends.
My sponsor has said that my amends may not be accepted at first. I'm thinking that will be okay. I would like to simply state that I put too many expectations on the friendship and overburdened it with my own personal issues. I know that the friendship has been altered and I'm not sure whether it can be revived. Or whether I want it to be revived. I'm finding that the less I'm around people who are judgmental and critical, the better I feel.
Maybe his part in my story is over. Maybe I'm just trying to resusitate something that has breathed its last breath.
