Changes

Friday, 27 September 2013

I havn't blogged all week because I have been making some changes in my life.

I have ended a friendship that was not healthy and quite frankly was co dependant.
It was a very hard thing to do although I have known for some time I would be doing it I was waiting for the right time.
It was a friendship that was exhausting and mentally draining and my life revolved around not upsetting this person. I was absolutely the wrong person for them to turn to and ending the  friendship was the only way either of us could move forward.
Knowing that I was doing the right thing did not make it any easier although I do know that I havnt abandoned them. This person has a support network and we have no place in each other's lives now.
This may seem like a very personal thing to blog about and I promise my next post will be much more light hearted, but writing about it helps me and my heart feels much lighter already.
So now it's a fresh start. I can concentrate on me and my family and look forward to whatever is to come my way.

  1. I am so sorry to hear about your friendship ending. Its happened to me before and I totally understand. The saying I go by now is 'People come into our lives for a reason, a season or a lifetime' and that's just the way life works. Don't be sad it ended, be happy it happened :)
    All the best

  3. Linsey, I am so sorry that you had to make that tough decision and end your friendship. But I completely respect your thinking. I had to go through something very similar, and although difficult, I realized in the end that it was the best thing for both of us. I wish you the best!

  5. I can definitely relate! A few years ago I ended a very close friendship that was over a decade old. It was definitely a co-dependent situation, with me living in fear of upsetting the other person, and really giving up large pieces of myself just so I could be there for the other person. I still miss the good times we have... but the truth is, I feel so FREE now!

  6. I think that we all have to go through this at sometime in our life. Even though it was hard, you'll be better off in the long run. It'll just take time to get through it.

  9. We all have to be brave enough to do this at some point for the good of both parties in the long run but it is just so, so hard and similar to a situation I'm currently struggling through. Sorry you've had to go through it too. x

    1. Thanks, it's good to know people know how I'm feeling and agree that I am doing the right thing. It was one of the hardest things I've ever done. xx

  10. Linsey, You were so brave and wise to make that decision. It's not easy to move away from relationships of any kind and we tend to let the negatives hold weight over our hearts and souls so much longer than need be. I commend you for doing one of the hardest decisions in your walk in life. We all have these types of relationships at some point in our lives. Though as good hearted people, we try so hard to be there for them, in the long run you surely made the right choice for you and your family. Thanks for sharing and reminding us that it is OK to severe those negative relationships or at least keep them at arms length.
    Came over from Angel's Blog Climb and am following you. I do not sew much but love the creative ideas I receive from fellow bloggers. I am a scrapbooker/papercrafter. Hope you can stop by sometime. I have been going through transitions in our household so my blogging has suffered. Do excuse my lack of posts of recent. But I am hoping to get back to it very soon.
    In the mean time have a wonderful Tuesday and hope your week is Blessed with Happiness and Joy.
