I have only told 2 close friends about my situation. One is very supportive, has a child herself, and the other... well... She is older than I am, single, and I truly believe she is trying to take some of the magic away from what is happening to me by taking the "I know what's best for you" stance all the damn time. I never jump to negative assumptions about people's motives, but she has been annoyingly naggy and over-protective, not to mention she has been talking down to me all the time. In the end, she has no way of knowing how I am feeling, and I shouldn't feel too bothered by what she says, but I hate controlling friendships and that is what I feel she is doing. Still, she is my best friend and I don't want to cut her lose because of this. I just wish she would be less involved in my decisions and not try to "school" me as much, as if she has any clue what I am experiencing. It is condenscending and irritating.
