Ex Friend Update

I have to "break up" with my ex friend again. I have bought myself some time until after Father's Day and hopefully I can pull my head out and do what is right for both of us. If you could only read the recent emails that I've gotten, you would be surprized at how toxic she still is, or maybe you wouldn't be.

I found myself getting more and more into the guilt of it all and I haven't yet gotten angry which I wish I would. It would be so much easier. And to think that I was just seconds away from clicking send with an email with my cell number in it.

It was good while it lasted and I've learned a lot about myself in the interaction. Silver linings and all of that.

I bought myself an adorable half apron today at Goodwill for $1.50. The cashier commented on how cute it was and mentioned that they hardly ever get any aprons anymore. I wonder why that is?

I'm still in love with the tattoo more than ever. One of my best decisions if I do say so myself :)

I'm so sorry it's come to this, but I had to do the same thing with someone who wanted to be my friend, but it wasn't a good idea for either of us, and I never persued it. Some friendships are meant to be and others just aren't.

BTW! COOL Tat! I've always wanted one on my ankle, and my husband would pay for it, but I am so chicken. I've labored with 4 kids, but I'm so scared to get a tat. Weird, huh!

Cute pics of Bec and his Dora sandals. :) Dora's cool!

Hope you have a great Thursday!

Too bad about your ex friend, i have had to do that to in the past... it's never easy. try not to feel to guilty about it, you have to do what is right for you.

I am sorry you are having to deal with this. You are right to wait until after Father's Day.

From one who knows your loss...hope Sunday is happy for you and you can focus on Hubby and not feel as much loss as last year. I am hoping it gets easier every year ..for both of us : )

Karianne, I love the pictures, the happy kids, the tattoo, and you protecting yourself from a harmful person. Keep up the good work, my friend!

It's never easy losing a friend. Even a "toxic" one. That familiarity is what is missed, but the negatives...well, sometimes it's better left.

Glad you're figuring things out. :)

I had an old roommate like that. I finally was able to distance myself from her after several years and she found me on MySpace. I ignored her friend request. I just needed my distance.

Totally relate. :)
