What About Your Friends?

I am sitting here thinking, how do you know when it is time to let go of a friend?  I have a bit of a reputation, for dumping friends at the drop of a hat for any particular reason I feel warrants.  I have tried to work on this, giving people the benefit of the doubt, especially considering things they have had to put up with concerning me.  But the problem is I have a hard time sometimes gauging where to draw the line.  I do not want to be too unforgiving and impatient about people’s missteps, but I don’t want to put up with any bull either.   Two recent scenarios have come up recently; that made me think, 'is it time to let them go?'.  

Here is the flip-side of that coin.  I feel as if I, like many women, have let dudes get away with murder, but we are quick to drop a friend.  So I ask you, what is your threshold for your friends?  Where do you draw the line?


  1. Well, you know I have a very high threshold for people on a whole. Maybe because my mother is who she is, I allowed myself to be very forgiving (sometimes to a fault.) But all in all, I believe that people must always ask themselves WWJD (what would Jesus do)

    At the end of the day, we must give each other what we want and expect in return. We are sometimes really hard on others with their stuff and yet in reverse, we expect them to get over it or accept you for who you are. Double standard.

    Be a work in progress, that is really in progress, lol. But be clear that and discern if it is you or that you really need to cut them off, because it could be either.

  2. Your Godmother is like that also, she will drop a female friend in a second but put up with all kinds of bull from men. It must be a Gemini trait, I have told her about herself when we were much younger, she has not changed, hopefully you will. And, yes, you are a piece of work yourself. love ya!
