I am busy and I don’t have tons of time to devote to negativity or negative people.
Have you guys ever had to ‘break up’ with a friend? How did you do it? Did you text, call, email? Or do it in person?
It’s to the point where I need to make my side/feelings known, and with that, I need them to understand why I don’t need them bringing me down every time I talk to them. Mentally, I cannot tolerate negative people at the moment as I have enough stress going on.
What are your thoughts? I don’t necessarily think that just not responding to friends would be a good idea, they would be really hurt if I just totally shut them down and never said anything to them again.

I learned the hard way that trying to explain to someone that the negative energy/mood/aura was hard to be around..and there is no happy ending. In the end, I have had to cut people from my life…but things are so much happier and less stressful since then. Sometimes I still miss them, but in the end I can’t say I regret it. I have one friend thats been coming around again, but its still the same and I find i have a harder time dealing with all the drama than I used to. Its a crappy situation to be in regardless…hopefully you figure something out though

I generally just ignore them until they get the hint.

@nerdwife12: Breaking up is hard to do, but your sanity is the most important thing besides your physical health. I simply distanced myself. No offense people, but I love me more. I’ve actually stepped away from family and ‘friends’ who really did intend to engage in a mutually beneficial relationship. It has definitely caused me to become a lot closer to my FH. He’s happy to not have to share me anyway. LOL
