Thanks proshay, mrd, and Critical! Mr pgm said that he didn't see why it mattered to me so much and why I ever hung around with them in the first place. He attended some "functions" with me and his take on it is that they are all materialistic, yuppie-ish, and want to be seen as the "in" crowd. I don't fit into that mold! The sad thing is that my problem is that I tried too hard to fit in with them and look where it got me. Ridiculed. I know people say, it's not always about you, but the text proved that things had been said behind my back so how do I take that - it is about me. I am not sure who else was included in the text but she said it was to 1 person (and these 2 are a couple of the ones I really trusted!) but I think other "texts" have probably been exchanged.
Again, thanks for listening and yes, my resolution is to do away with the people that bring me down and make new, healthier friendships!
