It isn't cool to be texting people while they are at work. They have a job to do and that is how they earn their money. If you keep interupting them, they could lose their job. When you go to your new job, you can't be texting people all day long. You are there to work. I hope that you are ready for that. You have to start setting your priorities straight. Your job and school. You are 23 years old, remember, you have to be an adult. And hanging with the friends isn't a part of that anymore. It is to a degree, but work and school comes first. I have to be honest and tell you to get used to it being this way. You want to be treated like an adult, you need to act like one. It is time Confused to get with the program. That is why you feel like you are being a burden to your friends, because you don't have your own life, meaning responsibilities. So sweetie, you will be respected much more if you get on with your own life. I wish that you could see it for what it is.
As for your x...You are pushing him away. He says he doesn't want to talk to you for a while. He doesn't know how long, there are no limits to that. It is for however long he decides. He will let you know when the time is right. But if you keep texting him too. You will lose him as a friend. Obviously he isn't appreciating you contacting him right now. You need to respect that.
I know that this is hard, but, you have to realize that you are an individual, with some responsibilities. You need to make that your new life. You need to study and work. I can't really blame your parents for wanting you to do something with your life. It isn't an easy world out there out from under mom and dad's roof. I am serious. You want to live comfortably, then you need to take some responsibility and study and work so that you can do as such. Otherwise it can be a hard road to go. Ask some of the people here who can't barely make ends meet. It is not easy out there confused. Not at all. We want you to make a life for yourself so that you can be happy. It takes work and you have the opportunities a lot of others don't have. Go for it girl!
I know that I am sounding harsh, but I see you doing the same things over and over, and that hurts you. Are you still going to counseling? I sure hope so. Your counselor should be giving you some direction by now. You have the tools, and I want to see you succeed. The only reason that I am saying all of this is because I think that you are a wonderful person, with a good head on your shoulders. YOu are smart. You can make it, but it is going to take some effort on your part. Study till you know the book inside and out if you have to. Work your fingers to the bones, as they say. You have to do that now, so you can live comfortably and be happy later. That is what life is about. So just do it. You can and we all know you can.
