Last Friday I was upset and vented on my FB mother's group that I am a part of. We all have been "friends" since we were pregnant, so for almost 3 years. There are about 35 of us on there and I would say about 25 post regularly. I vented about how my husband was called for an interview for a middle school language arts position in the district that laid me off due to budget cuts in 2010. I said how it is so hard for me to help him prepare for the interview because I am so envious. I also applied and hoped for an interview. DH didn't really intentionally apply for that position, he applied for a special ed one, but they called him for the Language arts one instead. I was also saying that DH is not a strong English teacher and if he got the position I would have to help him a lot. Well, these ladies took my post all wrong. They didn't understand why I would be hurt or upset. I explained I wasn't upset at DH, I was upset with the school district for not considering my rehire. A few ladies began basically attacking me saying that I am wrong for not supporting DH. One person said that I am a spoiled, self-centered, selfish brat! That comment got 5 likes! I was/am so hurt. Another lady posted that I always make it seem my way is the only way, which is so untrue! I have always respected and appreciated everyone's opinions. It was also said that DH will end up leaving me and Liliana will suffer if I don't change!
I just can't believe the things that were said to me. 2 ladies took my side, and I was grateful. Some ladies stayed out of it and didn't post at all. Now, I am not sure if I want to leave the group. I will miss most of the people and I will particularly miss hearing about the babies. Would you leave if you were me? I haven't posted or commented since Friday night when this happened.
I am so thankful for you guys. You seem to understand me and get me so much more than those ladies do. Thank you all for being here for me.
