Wouldn't it be nice to be happy all of the time. But if I stubbed my toe, I don't think I would laugh about it. I would yell, OUCH! So it is hard for me to picture somebody who never gets depressed. But I guess there are people like that.
I can see your hesitance to become close friends with her. I think putting her on the back burner for now is a good idea. But if she comes forward, maybe her optimism would cheer you up. One day at a time, I guess. Once I started thinking about my old friend, I saw this in a different light. I found out I couldn't trust her. Which really hurt me. I got my phone number changed and didn't give it to her. She was really hurt by that though. Oh well, I guess she got the hint.
She had an abusive boyfriend come home from out west. He came to my house looking for her. He was a total jerk, very impolite and we were having pizza, he threw his piece on the floor. Spun his tires out when he left and threw stones and dirt all over my truck when he did it. I told my husband about it and she (my friend ) got mad at me. She said she wished I hadn't done that. I told her I wasn't putting up with his crap and I didn't know how she did. But everytime he would be mean to her, she would call my husband crying on his shoulder. I later noticed her second son looked like my husband when he was a kid. What is up with that???? She was here on vacation right about the time that he would have been born. My husband is dead now. He died of lung cancer. I have a new husband who is very good to me now. Thank God.
Sorry for the rant, but this brought back some memories.
