• Such thing as too good at cutting people out?

    I might be one of the biggest pushovers you’ll ever meet. Or at least I used to be. It took me 18 years of being walked all over to realize that I’m better than that. I don’t need these “friends” and distant family members that are constantly trying to control my life. Up until a few months ago I allowed them to.

    Something in me snapped, like the straw that broke the camel’s back sort of thing. I took a step back and thought long and hard. I realized all the great people I have in my life. And I realized that all this time I spent sad and upset over the not so great people, wasn’t worth it. They didn’t deserve my years.

    I have cut these people out of my life and you know what? I really don’t miss them anymore, not when I remember how they made me feel. But now im worried. I have gotten very good at cutting people out of my life, and im scared one of these times I’m going to be too harsh and cut someone out that doesn’t necessarily deserve it. My mom seems to think I already have. Ugh, internal struggles :/

      I think because of your experience with toxic people you will be able to recognize “healthy” ones easier. Don’t worry too much about cutting out those that might not deserve it. If they’re meant to be part of your life somehow they will be. Cheers.

      i think you should not concentrate on cutting people out. just do the things that you know are right for relationships you want. if you do this then naturally the people you dont want fall away and and the ones you do stay. can get tricky sometimes if approaching from the standpoint of “does that person deserve it” instead of concentrating on yourself and what YOU should be doing to treat people nicely. Aint us down here for judging anyway but ok to look at others to get ideas on what u don’t and do want to be like. got no control anyway on wat others do, ya know. Mostly, cant really go wrong if keeping an eye on yourself for double check.
