Me, us, or society?

Here's something I've wonder about for a long time. In the past week I've had my plans canceled by 3 different people on 3 different occasions! Normally I'm not that cool and make that many plans in a week, but hey sometimes that's just the way it works. Now I'm not blaming these girls, by any means and at least they had the descent to let me know ahead of time, and we've rescheduled. It's something that has happened to me more times than I can count in the past few years. Is it just me? Do people feel my friendship is disposable and they can just not show or back out any time something better comes up? Is it our age group and people just lack commitment? Or just society where we over book ourselves all the time and then realize that we just can't do it all?

Maybe I'm just over sensitive because I got spoiled living with my best friends in college and always having them there. Now that we all live close to an hour away from each other and are all married or in serious relationships it's def different. Maybe I just have high expectations for people. Or maybe it's just God reminding me that we can't put our trust in people, only in him :-)

I can completely relate. COMPLETELY. Declan and I had a get together scheduled at our house one time, we were sooooo excited for. Literally at the time they were supposed to be there, they called and said they weren't showing up. It bothered me so much. It's our culture. I'm totally not like that. I relate.
