That's what I am feeling like lately.
The Third Wheel.
O.C. fans out there?
It's like that episode where Ryan feels like the third wheel with Marissa & Oliver
Or when Kristen Wiigs character in bridesmaids doesn't get to sit by Maya Rudolph but the other chick does.
Anywho, so here are a few reasons why.
I grew up in a big family.
My sisters shared a bedroom growing up because they are only 14months apart in age.
Obviously my 2 brothers shared a room because they are male.
My sisters each had each other as their maid of honors for their weddings.
I was put as the last person in the line of bridesmaids.
So partially to be vindictive I did the same in my wedding.
They also have 2 daughters each around the same age.
I've always felt left out being the youngest sister. The need to fit in, relate, and wanting to be included. I realize that this sounds so dumb but it's something I will always struggle with.
(ask my husband, lol)
I also feel that way with friends.
Maybe this is in part to do how I felt growing up with my sisters but I feel like when I make someone a friend and I make them a priority that the feelings should go both ways.
There isn't a thing I wouldn't do for my friends.
Sometimes when all your friends get together do you ever notice that people break off in to mini groups? Or you ever feel like the third wheel in a group of friends?
I feel I always put my friends feelings, thoughts, problems, etc. before mine.
It hurts when it doesn't go both ways.
I hate the feeling of being left out.
I guess its selfish to ask friends not to do things with out you.
For instance, you want to have a get together but the date doesn't work for you?
Don't have it till it works for everyone.
I guess I just wish that the people I love and care about most treated me the way I treat them.
I just want someone to call me their best friend, confidant, etc.
To know that I would do anything for them and hope they would do the same.
