MIDLIFE FRIENDSHIP STATUS REPORT
We are in the process of letting go of those who clutter our lives - right?
(see post New Year's Resolution 1/4/12)
How is it going?
Have you said 'good bye' to anyone yet?
Who did you let go?
Why did you choose her?
How did you say 'goodbye'?
The next step is to be aware of lingering feelings.
Are you relieved? happy? conflicted? sad? all of these mixed together?
Usually these feelings are temporary and will pass.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Reminder: You are letting go and making room to invite new, quality friends
into your life.
List the friends you have let go.
Did you say 'goodbye' in the same way to each of them?
Did you use a different process for each?
- what was the best way of saying 'goodbye'? What made it work?
- what was the worst way of saying 'goodbye'? What went wrong?
