Should I let the friendship go??
So I have a friend who I love dearly, she is a lot of fun and we’ve been there for each other through some tough times and lot of fun times too.
Over the last 12 months I’ve started to notice a lot of our phone calls end with the call cutting out. She doesn’t try to call back and if I mention it she just laughs about her battery going flat (if I call her she doesn’t answer). It happens so much it’s become really obvious that she is hanging up.
I definitely feel the conversations are mutual (and I’ve been really paranoid to make sure they aren’t one sided since I started to suspect she’s hanging up), I ask about her family, work etc and I feel the conversations are genuinely two sided. Sometimes our conversations can be long but I don’t understand if she has to go why she wouldn’t just say???
For example the other day she called as I was leaving work to pick my kids up school, she was also picking hers up, I parked at the school and was just about to say ‘I better get going the kids are coming out’ when the call disconnected.
I feel like such a loser that my friend doesn’t have the same love and respect for me to just say she needs to go. I feel embarrassed and uncomfortable confronting her, I’m such a wimp with tackling issues head on.
I don’t really know what I’m asking since I know most of you will probably just say to ask her about it but I just don’t think I can.
We share several mutual friends and have kids of similar ages and our husbands are friends, to be completely honest I feel like to much of a loser to tackle it, I mean I’m a grown woman whose friend is regularly hanging up mid phone call, I feel embarrassed that she feels the need to do this.
I always have so much fun with her, I love her sense of humour but I feel like this is saying a lot about what I will accept as a person if I continue to ignore this. Should I just let the friendship go?? As I said we have loads of mutual friends so would still be at a lot of the same things but wondering if I should just step back from her being one of my closer friends despite how much I enjoy her company if this is how she is going to treat me?
Thoughts/advice please 🙏
