THE SWAMP GODDESS® GUIDE TO MENOPAUSAL MAYHEM
AND AGING ANGST
BLOG #27 by Wendy Kyman, Ph.D.
MIDLIFE FRIENDSHIP DRAMA
Who needs the drama?
As we journey through the double milestone® of menopausal mayhem
and aging angst, most of us are not in the mood for any dramatic encounters.
With this in mind, how do we end a friendship?
Can the unwanted drama be avoided? Unlikely!
Some of us do attempt to avoid it by choosing silence.
We let the friendship die from neglect.
We just happen to be unavailable to spend time together - Never!
Our phone conversations get interrupted - Always!
And, we seem to forget to call back - Uh huh!
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Do you believe your avoidance is working?
Do you care?
Your concern, or lack of it, clearly expresses your feelings.
How will your friend react when she gets your silent message? She will!
How will you respond? Will you?
