Deuces

March 6th, 2017: BYE, FELICIA

I wish you could break up with friends the way you do romantic partners. So instead of feeling obligated to drag on friendships long past their expiration date, you could say something like: hey, yeah, so you’ve draining and snarky and judgmental all these years. I’m not sure I like being around you, and it’d be real nice if you quit dragging me down. This isn’t working out. I’m finding kinder and stabler people to be in my life. Deuces. 

But then that’d start all sorts of shit. And ain’t nobody got time for that.

    Please don’t ever “break up” with me. If you ever chunk up the deuce on WordPress, I’d have to resort to blogging on Tumblr, and I CANNOT do that.

    Speaking of toxic friendships, I was about to write an article on this topic. I was never much of a writer but these days I find myself wanting to vomit my feelings on paper. I wrote a break up letter to a now ex-friend who I have known for several years and mailed it to her! Yep, rather than tear it up into a million pieces and let it eat away at my soul I did something brave, for once. I may end up uploading the letter and changing her name because I was pretty damn proud of myself and want to share it with people who may be able to relate to this kind of pain.

    Hahaha. Got me on this one. I’m also the worst friend ever I think. I never break up. Just sort of leave….
    I like your posts and look forward to reading more!

      Ahhh, I just wrote a post on Toxic Friendships shortly after replying to this thread. Deuces made some great points which inspired me to write a post called “Weeding out Toxic Friends.” 🙂
