I’ve recently gone through a break up. A friend break up, if you will. And I wanted to talk about it with you guys. Because I think it’s important.
I won’t go in to much detail about my “friend breakup” but this person carried around a lot of negativity. It really weighed on me and my other friends. There were obviously times where it would be okay… but the bad out weighed the good tremendously. I never knew what to do because I felt bad for her. She didn’t have any good friends except for me and my friends and I didn’t want to just cut her off because that’s not the kind of person I am. So I just stuck it out and stayed her friend for way longer than I should have and doing that isn’t really fair to you or the other person involved, so I don’t recommend doing that with any sort of relationship.
I guess it ended because she said something to someone about me behind my back, that a friend shouldn’t say, ever. It was kind of the straw the broke the camels back, if you will. She had done things in the past that I just kind of looked past because again, I felt bad for her and I was too good of a person to cut her out of my life. Believe it or not, I did learn a lot from being her friend. I learned that you shouldn’t stay someone’s friend just because you feel bad for them, if you don’t trust them with your secrets and you can’t tell them personal things and trust that they won’t tell the whole world you shouldn’t be hanging out with them, and if your friend is negative and stresses you out and doesn’t add to your life and bring you joy you shouldn’t be their friend.
This negative influence is, luckily, out of my life for good. And I hope that you get the courage to get rid of anyone negative in your life, too! Trust me, it will only make your life better.
