i have pondered this for some very long time. letting go of relationships means letting go of people. i have done this. it has been done to me. i think of how i have felt realizing someone didn’t contact me back and that maybe they didn’t want to have anything to do with me. during my time in counseling i discovered the thinking about what did i need certain relationships for? was i the one that did all the work? did i do all the talking, planning, prepping, deciding??? what did i really need this person for? was it something in my warped need of relationships that i had befriended this person? i learned about what to do with relationships, how to truly be a real friend and person. that having lots of friends isn’t really what life is about.
i ‘unfriend’ people on facebook. that is horrible sounding. but how can people have like 849 friends? are you really friends with them all? does it matter that you have that many on facebook? do all these people care if you or i am their ‘friend’? hmmm…..
just a thought.
