6 Dec

A desire to be needed, just for me
A hope to belong, fit in, one of the gang
A longing for closeness, sharing, laughter, and memories
Where I’m the friend they all want to have

Tired of being the new kid, the out of towner that hasn’t found a niche
Tired of doing the calling or the texting, just want to be thought of first for a change
Tired of trying and failing and hearing, “Hey, try some more,”
Just tired

    Thanks for writing this, Heather. I would think it was something hard to ‘say aloud.’ I was just expressing similar sentiments to Mark the other day. It’s the whole ‘being tired of inviting people over for dinner, yet never receiving a dinner invitation’ thing. Praying for you!!

      Thanks Amy. It wasn’t easy to write and not trying to get sympathy, just felt like getting it off my chest. Praying for you as well!
