So I have been in a very stressful place lately. I have been struggling with money and wondering how we are going to make it most days. Which led me to Beachbody and becoming a coach to hopefully make extra money one of these days. It hasn't happened yet but I am optimistic. I know I can help people and these products are great! I have also had "friends" who have shown me that maybe I should not be their friend. I am not going into the details because I would be here for days, but they have pushed me to the point of not tolerating their crap anymore. It's a horrible thing to know that these people that you thought were trustworthy, but turn out not to be. I am not saying I am a perfect friend either, but I try my best. Plus besides myself, I have children. These girls are my life and they deserve to have only the best of me and my friends and family. If I am bringing sketchy people around, how is that healthy for them? I have been known to be a forgiving person. Most of the time I will forgive and forget. I do this way too much. I had a friend that I was friends with for years on and off because she was not a good friend. I have finally written her off for good. I have done this with a few others as well. Now I feel like I am a heartless person for it but I just can't stand to put up with b.s. anymore. I don't want to have to worry about whether I can trust somebody or what that person is doing or saying behind my back. It's drama that I don't need. I don't have time! One particular person just keeps coming back. I have blocked them on a few networks but they find a way to find me, add me, and then send me messages. Why?? According to them I was not a good friend to them. I was given a laundry list of things that made me a horrible friend. So why is this person basically stalking me on social networks? I have no idea. So I decided:  fine, I will let them in again. I feel like I should give them a chance since they are trying so hard to be my friend. Am I wrong? Will I regret this? Who knows right? I guess I will never know until it happens. So what is my point in this blog? My point is:  people are usually good people, but you have to look for them. Everyone is so focused on the tragedies and the stresses that they lose sight on the good things. I am trying to see that more now. I am often focused on the opposite. I worry SO much! I was recently shown that I work with amazing people. These people have given me so much love since I started last March. They knew I was struggling with things right now. A few people have given my daughters amazing gifts and just let me unload my stresses on them. I am very grateful that I have them in my life. These are the types of people I need around me. I don't need or deserve less than that. I will step off my soap box now. Have a lovely day/evening (depending on when you read this LoL)!


  1. We were each calling the other a bad friend, if memory serves. We both held resentments against the other instead of talking them out as soon as they arose for either of us, and so we took it out on each other in not such positive words.

    We've both learned from the mistakes we made in our friendship, I am sure. I felt, and still feel, as though we could let it all go and begin anew. Otherwise, I would not be "stalking" you, as you put it. I still care about you and your family. I miss you and I know we can at least be on social-network-friendly terms again, as we've been on MFP lately.

    However, if you wish for me to leave you alone completely, then please just let me know and you won't hear from me again. Promise.

    Happy New Year!

    1. It doesn't matter what was said or not said. I'm not getting into the details of it. I will not however take another fight like that again. Its petty and I'm much too worried about more important things. So be my friend or not. That's for you to decide. I made the step to open my end up so apparently I'm open to the possibility of something more later.
