It's not fair. I know that's an overused saying these days, but it's true. See, my friend's girlfriend recently broke up with him. They were only going out for a month or so. But everyone (myself included) has been offering him a shoulder to cry on.
My girlfriend's family found out about us 5 months ago. We've been best friends for 8 years. I even lived with her family for a few years. Now we're forbidden from even talking to each other. I had spent every single day for the past few years with her, and suddenly I can't even send her a friendly email. All of our friends knew what was going on. But when this happened, only one of them stepped forward to offer her support. Everyone else just made it a point not to mention her name in my presence.
I know it's wrong, but I've been resenting this friend. I know he didn't do anything, but it bothers me that he can get so much sympathy for such a short lived relationship. And there are times, like when I'm missing her so bad that I cry for hours, that I hate my friends for not thinking that I might hurt too. For not realizing that the lonliness and pain are just as real as anything they can feel.
Does it make me a bad person?
