Have you ever had one of those friendships where you never really realized what the person was like until you spent a significant amount of time with them? All of a sudden, things become clearer – complaints about their personality and neediness/clinginess become all too apparent and you finally GET why others have ditched the party…then you realize you’re now the only one standing at the punch bowl.
It ain’t fun but I suppose everyone goes through this at some point in their lives right? Having to filter out their real-life “friends list”. The question then becomes whether it is ethical to ditch a bankrupt friendship or if it is better to just smile and bear it since the other person hasn’t really done anything wrong (except get on your nerves by being themselves).
I don’t know if there’s a right answer to this…but I guess that’s how the apple berry crumbles! *smug*
