Ella,

Sorry to butt in to this convo but I noticed something you said up there and wanted to point it out to you.

If I understood you correctly, you said that when you saw your friend at a work meeting you said a casual "hi" to your friend and her response was that she has been depressed. Is that correct? That's the answer to why she has avoided you. See,its been there all along.

Please understand that depressed people isolate. Sometimes they barely have enough energy to put one foot in front of the other. And by her telling you that she had been depressed was her way of reaching out to you for help, comfort, or understanding.

Sometimes when we feel abandoned by our friends we personalize it waay too much, making it all about *me* instead of looking at what may be going on with *them.* Our insecurities and past rejection do this to us. Its something to work on.

Cut her some slack, focus on how you can be of help to her, instead of focusing so much on yourself. Its when we help others that we find the most fulfillment in life.

Sometimes we all need to take our eyes off of the *self* and point them towards other people, looking for ways to make their world a little brighter.

good luck with your friend,
thewall

thewall...
thank you from me for reminding of this important thought process. i am guilty of such. and each time a truth is heard it becomes more real, more clear and easier to apply.
