Default Feeling guilty, not going to be able to visit.

I can not help but feel guilty... i was planning a visit with my boyfriend this weekend i was going to go drive a four hour drive there to stay in a hotel for the weekend to visit him for two days then drive back.. Well i planned it kinda last minute because of work scheduling so then i went to book a hotel and realized everything was all booked because of the holiday weekend.. So i wasnt able to do that, so now i was going to go for just the one day, drive four hours in the middle of the night then visit then drive home. but i am to nervous to do the drive by myself in fear of falling asleep! And yesterday my mom got into a car accident and is very upset about it, and doesnt want to go anywhere.. (she offered to go up with me for one of the days, but i just couldnt let myself take her because of how crappy she is feeling) and i know she just wants to see me happy. but i dont want to make her come up with me if she doesnt really want to, and my parents dont want me to drive by myself either neither does my boyfriend. SOO now i just feel bad because i most likely wont be seeing him this weekend.. My boyfriend completely understands and was so understanding about it. But i just feel like i let him down. Even though i didnt. And work has just been drama all week also. SO not a good week..... Sorry for rambling.

Not getting a visit is a bit of a letdown.....much like not winning the lottery is a bit of a let down as well. It's nice if it happens, but life is full of little disappointments. Your man, handled it with maturity and thoughts for your safety. He is not throwing a tantrum like a 2 year-old. He's not trying to guilt you into coming anyway at the risk of your safety or peace of mind. He's being incredibly respectful of you. It is a let down and a disappointment, to be sure. But that's all part of life. It's how we handle life's disappointments that is the true test of character. So instead of feeling guilty, be proud that your man is showing he can handle anything life is throwing his way with a mature, healthy response. That attitude will serve both of you well when he gets out.

Its ok hon.....your BF understands your dilemma so there is no need to feel guilty. You didn't do anything wrong. Plus, being a holiday weekend makes reserving rooms a little more difficult. With it being last minute and all the drama at work, it might have just slipped your mind. I totally forgot it was a holiday weekend until everyone at work said "see you Tuesday " It was a nice surprise though
And the fact that you are such a thoughtful daughter and don't want your mom to have to take that long ride when she isn't feeling well says a lot about you.
Last but definitely not least is your safety. Your BF and family care most about your well being and that comes first. There will be more weekends to come *hugs* & you can also look at it this way....holiday weekends=more drunk drivers on the road. You don't need to be out there alone, in the middle of the night
