So I’m talking on the phone with a long time friend and we begin discussing how as you get older and more content with being by yourself you have less tolerance for things you use to put up with when you were younger. Toxic friends and our little pet peeves about friendships that’s what I want to share.
Years ago I got to know a lady through my children‘s football league. In the beginning we hit it off well but the relationship gradually started to change for the worse. My children really didn’t get along with her children and they would get irritated when I told them they were coming over. Anytime she would call me it was always hey girl what you doing today, tomorrow, next week. She had my days planned for me before I could plan them and she wasn’t one that understood NO. Gradually I had to stop answering her calls until she finally left me alone. You may say was cruel or wrong. I say, I had to get away from her and fast. I’m just saying.
Then there are the friends that always want you to come and see them. They never come to your house you always have to make the trip to their home. It’s more convenient for them if you get off your butt and visit. My biggest pet peeve are the one’s that YOU make plans to hang out with your children or one another together and at the last-minute they ALWAYS have a reason why they can’t make it BUT when THEY make the plans you better jump and do what they have planned.
I definitely hate when someone calls me and most of the conversation is filled with them talking to EVERYONE in the background. Hey you knew you were busy when you called me, call me back when it’s not so hectic.
Now I know I’m not perfect and I try not to be the offender. If I am please bring it to my attention so it can get fixed. All I’m saying is please try to be the best friend you can be because if not who needs ya. I’m just saying.
