Today was just one of those days that make you feel really glum. Hubby was out for a few hours and the kids were right little terrors. Then I jumped onto facebook and on my feed were pictures and comments about a friends hens party which another friend of mine had organized- and it seems like I’m the only one who was NOT invited. After all the constant bullying in my workplace it just makes me feel really blue. I mean I work with every single one of those girls and I studied with one of those same girls years ago.

I’m just wondering is there a reason that certain people get bullied? Or a reason why I never get invited to anything? I’ve moved town twice now with my career and still can’t find any decent friends. :-(. I am nice to everybody, don’t backstab or bitch behind anyones back. Have varied interests but yet am always the one left out of everything. Any tips anyone?

  • Oh sweetie, I feel for you. Some very good suggestions from others.


  • forget it, it is a reflection of them, not you. You need to meet people that have the same interests as you and not just people that you are kind of “forced” to get to know like in the workplace.

    • i hoe that you are better in regards to this now.


  • i hope you can move on from this …


  • its the poeple that bully who has a problem


  • Someone told me that you’ll probably only have about 5 true friends in your life time the rest are really just acquaintances. I have so far found this to be quite true.


  • Seems to me like they are the ones with the problem! – it is hard but you know inside you are a good person and it is them who are missing out


  • Things do get better. i found that after i had children my friends circle tended to be other parents and not the people going out etc. Maybe try for a friend circle through a mums group. and bullying (even in the work place) should not have to be tolerated speak up. good luck and i hope your days get better.


  • As an adult you shouldn’t have to put up with that. Maybe find some new friends. Mothers support groups on in your area are a good start


  • I’m sorry you are having a blue day. I was bullied as a child I had my hair pulled on the bus, I was threatened and harassed by groups of girls and so forth. I think what is important to remember is that it is not you that has the problem but them. They may be jealous or have insecurities. I was bullied because I was a good girl who did as she was told and who had parents who cared. I had a nice school bag and packed lunch and they didn’t. So they were jealous.
