  1. It happens. I had a friend many many years ago who was very destructive, very judgemental. She was the most negative person I knew and very draining. It got harder and harder to call her. The day I stopped phoning her was a day I don’t regret.

    • Yes it’s a very hard thing to do, but when not only you recognize the negativity and the traits of a friend that is using you, controlling you or draining your energy in some way, but your other friends start to point it out, it’s then that you need to step back and take a look at what you have been enabling. If you have compassion for people and your nature is to help, it is a very hard decision to finally cut them off. When you do, you suddenly feel so much lighter! You know that it was for the best.

      • That’s so true. It took me a long time, I used to spend hours on the phone to her, listening, offering advice and encouraging her. Giving her support. There was never, ever any reciprocation. And I always got off the phone totally drained. I occasionally think of her and wonder how she is and hope she’s doing okay. But mostly I’m glad I’ve moved on.
