Hello Lovebear1965 . It's great to hear you are doing better. These things take time, so be kind and gentle with yourself.

As for clear out of friends, I did that too sometime back. I figured I needn't spend my time pretending I was happy to keep giving, and not everyone deserves a place at my table. It felt good knowing I didn't have to play along anymore.

I hope things continue to improve for you. Take good care of yourself, put yourself first.

I love 'not everyone deserves a place at my table', lol, I'm going to bank that in my brain for future nudges to what I need to do. Thank you Caspiana 😁🌻x




It's funny how being sick makes you realise exactly how many people you've wasted precious time on. Getting shut, is a weight off the shoulders. It's their loss.

I hope you continue to improve. xx


Sounds like a good idea to have a friend purge - if you're constantly giving, it's a drain on the precious energy you have left & you need to save plenty to fight YOUR fight. Glad you're feeling better - onwards & upwards 🌻x


Good to hear about your improvement in health. It's not a bad thing to have a "friend" de-clutter either so well done.

Hope you stay as well as you can. Xxxxxx


You're doing so well, and good for you getting rid of the dead wood!! I have been 'pruning' my friends for the past year and know that the few who are left are genuine - feels good!. Take care & all best wishes x
