You’re welcome, I’m pleased to have been able to be one of the people to give you some perspective and hopefully nudge you towards a happier life. I think you will feel much lighter with them off your hands!

That old adage is not helpful. Very few people get to grow with their friends and all in the same direction is an even bigger expectation. You have to put yourself first.

Don’t get hung up on the notion that a virtuous person is willing to keep everyone in her life. Being virtuous may mean that you’re willing to forgive even the most horrific of crimes in a person, but it does NOT mean that you keep that person in your life. In like manner, compassion can certainly include the recognition that some people are UNHEALTHY for our lives. 

You can forgive, behave kindly forevermore, and simultaneously say goodbye to unhealthy people.
