This is one of my favorite DP poems. I remember my first broken heart and
that it took me a lot longer than I thought to get over it (actually I'm
still quite bitter about that..grr).
I think she's not talking about actual friends so much as general cliche's,
like "time heals all wounds" etc. You feel betrayed when it turns out to be
so much harder than you always thought and personally I felt like, damn it,
someone should have warned me about love being so very shitty sometimes!

The fact that it took more than one month is just to show how naive and
immature the speaker is. I don't believe it has anything to do with people
underestimating your hurting.

Two months is not the time it takes to end her grief. The fact that she
takes one more month means that the pain takes longer then others give
credit for. If you dont feel the same pain at the time you will belittle
others and discount it as real as it holds no relevance to you. Two months
is not an exact time its just a clever way of saying it takes longer.
Dont you hate it when you dont feel well but others say "stop being silly
you should."
