It's Friday. Plans for the weekend are limited and my optimism is down. I want to avoid the same old thing but the prospect of sitting alone has little appeal. I will probably have dinner with Janet and Roberta and stay away from Coleen. I know where she will be and if I go there it will just reinforce the way she sees me. A friend who is always there on her terms.
I did that last Friday but by Saturday morning I was back to texting and I ended up spending most of my Saturday in contact with her. By Sunday she was obviously taking me for granted and I need to make new plans.
