It's been a couple months since you've spent time with your core group of friends. You've missed recent get-togethers because you've been so busy with work, family issues, and planning your wedding. You feel really guilty which is why you've gone out of your way to make it to dinner tonight at one of your friend's houses. You're about ten minutes late, and they must not have heard you come through the door.
As you make your way into the living room, you hear them talking about you — you just walked in on the tail-end of their b*tch session all about you. You know you've been flaky lately, but you thought they would have been more understanding, and you can't help but are incredibly hurt.
You think about going in and confronting them, but you don't want it to turn into a them-against-you situation, but if you just leave, it'll be another thing you didn't show up for. It seems like a lose lose situation so how would you handle this?
