I've done it on FB and I encourage anyone to do the same. You know…those friends of friends that are a negative angry presence on your Facebook wall? My FB is a lot smaller - and happier - now. This applies to real life too. I've had a very dear friend for the past 30 years. But her treatment of me this past year made me take a good hard look at the relationship. And I didn't like what I was seeing. But the cognitive dissonance that was stirring in my heart was always silenced by my excuses for her judgmental comments. "Her heart's in the right place. Well, she means well. She'll think about that later…" Blah, blah, blah. These past several months I've been stepping back from the relationship. I've politely declined coffee/lunch dates. More than once, I was relieved to have been working and was unable to meet. (She recently retired so her schedule opened up a lot more.) We got together with them the other night. Really, a polite move on our part. But we felt the timing was okay and really don't want to throw 30 years of relationship into the wind. The evening was so enlightening to me. The signs have been there all along. Our priorities are so different. The judgment toward me and my family. The posturing and ego! I left wondering why the hell they even want to come out and play with us. (Hubby feels the same way, BTW.) I know TMS healing requires evaluating relationships…especially if you've got a tough case like I do. (Years of "fibromyalgia") Mustering the courage to honestly address relationships is one of the hardest things I've ever done and I know in time, I'll be grateful. Right now it's just plain painful. How about you? Have you had to sever some relationships?
