WELCOME TO MIDLIFE MEMOS
THE SWAMP GODDESS® GUIDE TO MENOPAUSAL MAYHEM AND AGING ANGST
BLOG # 53 by Wendy Kyman, Ph.D.
NO CHANCE FOR A MIDLIFE FRIENDSHIP
Hopefully, you had a wonderful 'prepare for summer' shopping break.
It's time to get back to friendship frenzy.
Our current topic - getting dumped by a friend. SIGH!
She wants to end the friendship - we don't.
Our friend has rejected all attempts to repair the relationship.
What happened to this friendship?
Why did we think the friendship was solid when our friend did not?
How do we handle the pain and shock caused by our friend's actions?
We thought we were the only ones deciding whether or not
to end friendships.
We learned the hard way that our friends are busy with their
own decision making?
It is awful to be left with unexpected pain.
What can we do?
We do the only thing possible - LET GO!
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Letting go allows us to create room to invite new, quality friends into our lives.
Design a strategy to let go.
It is essential to include a time frame.
Specify how long it will take you to let go.
