I've Made A Decision

I’ve made some decisions in my life. I feel this is the best route for me to take at this time and I’m sure I will be much happier. Although this decision was not easy or done in hast, it was the best thing for all concerned.

I’ve decided to dump my current bitch ass BFF’s for some new kick ass friends! I need new friends that are funny, spontaneous, adventurous, employed and love traveling.

I am sick of these boring heifers that I currently hang around. Humph!

Huh, I feel better already.

Have you ever felt the need to let go of your current baggage and start fresh?

Hell Yeah! Count me in! Grab a stool (bar that is) and order me a Peach martini.....Car's running....see ya soon!

Well, I had a husband -once -and he's been long gone (like 29 years this summer) so does that count for starting over with new associations? Any other friends that have changed came about more through relocation so I do still have some contact with most of them. But there is one (local) who apparently "dumped" me since she hasn't phoned in over six years -since I was diagnosed with Cancer. Guess that wasn't such a good friend after all though, huh?
But yeah, if they're dragging you down, then shop around and replace! Just like getting a new wardrobe then, ya know.

Are you kidding? Do you have a year to listen?

Jules said...

I've DEFINITELY done that at times! Count me in!!

That one girl said...

OH YEAH! And wrote a whole post about it.

I call it, 'pruning'.

Congrats on your pruning!

It's pretty common that this will happen in life; I actually had this discussion yesterday with a friend of mine. But letting people "go" is pretty much a natural process in life; it's part of evolving as an individual.

JSADTheKing said...

Yes especially when your friends are broke or just not on the same level as you are.

The Dish said...

It is definitely necessary to "thin down" your friends every once in awhile. Hope you enjoy the new ones! ;)

Karen said...

I have done that in the past. It is not always easy though.

If there are new friend auditions, I am in!

Well, we have heard about your friends leaving you at bars and such, and we've heard about you having some friend who is totally in denial about her family situation and leaving you all in the middle of stuff that shouldn't be your business.

So it might be time for some new friends.

Me, I could probably use a new man and a new mom. And my friends are nice, but they really just aren't me sometimes, so I could probably use some new friends too.

I used to see movies where people just get off the bus someplace because that is where they ran out of money or something, and then they just ended up with a whole new life and a great new bunch of friends. Too scared to actually try that one myself, but it does make for good movies.

Yes, I've done this before! I think it's a natural part of life. I hope you find some new friends that fit what you want real soon. :)

More power to you!
But a decision like that maybe easier said than done...old friends are like old habits...comfortable and familiar
Good Luck!

Anna said...

lol, all all the time....but I am having fun now! What a cool blog you have. Anna :)

I totally agree. It's just hard to find a new posse to hang with. I have made a good friend at work this year who helped me float the cat down the creek yesterday in that video that I posted. Not many woman at 40 are spontaneous - kids, jobs, husband... lots tying us down.

Renaissance Woman said...

Been there...done that! And sounds like you are making better decisions for yourself. Good for you!

King of New York Hacks said...

Are you social climbing or going for some social diving ? LOL

Amber said...

Errrrrrr....can't say I've ever called them THAT but I for sure have moved on from toxic friendships!

Suze said...

Yup and I feel better for it. You go girl.

moooooog35 said...

I fit those requirements, but you'd have to get my wife's permission on the 'traveling' thing.

You leave ONE time for 2 years and they never let go of the leash when you come back.

Crazy.

abbagirl74 said...

I don't have many girl friends. In fact, I only have one and she lives 5 hours away. Most of my friends are guys, and there are only a handful. Sometimes you have to make those decisions based on what is going on in your life.

Freckle Face Girl said...

I'm the queen of starting over, but mainly because I move a lot. It is fun to start with a fresh new group of friends.

CarmenSinCity said...

Oh yeah! I totally know how you feel! Most of the time, I usually get sick of EVERYONE in my life, I burn some bridges, and just can't take it anymore, so I LEAVE! INstead of just sticking around and making new friends, I usually move to a new place, for instance, my move to Sin City! woo hoo! I love your much more SANE idea, to stay at your job and just make some new friends. Awesome. Do you have any idea where you are going to do to meet some new friends??

imbeingheldhostage said...

Several times! If the friends aren't helping you to be all that you can, it's time to move on... oh wait, were you talking bloggy friends?

Amber said...

Oh my that cracked me up. Heifers! I have 2 friends that instantly come to mind that it doesn't seem to matter how long it's been since the last time they talked to you, they'll act like it was just yesterday because they need something. The one is always lookin' for money because my man has a good job and the other thinks I should be her chauffeur. I suggest they both get a new plan because that one ain't gonna work...at least not with me!
