spork Posted May 16, 2009 Share Posted May 16, 2009 So, I'll admit that I had a problem with my friendships up until last year. I magnetically attracted people who are emotional vampires. I know there's something I need to work on to resolve this... For now, I'm glad I've cut these people out of my life, but I choose not to make new friends for now ... unless I know they are not going to suck the life out of me. I'm moving slowly with anyone I meet. Anyway, one of the friends I stopped hanging out with confronted me recently. I would have thought that my not calling her anymore would have helped her get the message. But no. So, now do I write her a letter? Call her to make it clear that I really don't see the point (from my side) of restarting a friendship with her. What do I say? I feel like saying, "Your problems are too big for me. Please consider therapy." But that sounds really mean. I just can't watch people who won't get themselves help continue making the same bad choices over and over ... and sit silently by. It feels like I'm supporting/enabling their bad choices. Arrrgh.... Any ideas? Insights? Personal experience? ps I have my own MI issues to worry about. Their issues make me have more issues.
