Distancing Yourself


As much as I love being around people, I realized that not everyone is good for me. 7 years ago, the amount of "Friends" I had, was unbearable! As I reflect on my friendships over the years, it quickly registered to me that I can count my friends on one hand.

Some friends were in my life because of the knowledge I had and the people I knew...> you're probably thinking I knew many well known people<... I didn't but it became aware to me that these "friends" were memorized by the party scene. It was all about getting to know these promoters so you can access certain events for little to no cost.

I had some friends that were in my life because they saw my love for children. I remember this one particular "friend" that had children many years ago and I always watched them for her when she is at work or out partying..etc. There were many incidents that occur when it was time to drop the kids off or for her to pick her kids up. During those times, she was no where to be found..>no she wasn't missing<.. She was out and able living her best life and not caring about the fact that I was doing her a favor by watching her children. I recall my job gave me several warnings because I was either late to work or had to call in last minute due to this "friend" taking advantage of me by not picking her kids on time and not being about to prioritize my time as well as hers. This happened over 2 years and a few years ago, I had to distance myself from her and many others. Though I love those kids, I had to put my needs first.

I also had some friends that just grew apart and that is okay. Some friendships didn't end up as positive as I would have wanted.

Some people are truly in your life to absorb and take advantage of you. Dolls, it is time we take a stand and distance ourselves from negativity, users and abusers.
