  • me too. I am 43 too. Almost 44 in two weeks. If a friendship was dragging you down, it's time to move on. Don't worry you'll live and learn. I know i did and don't regret letting go of the friendship. It's been 5 years now. I don't miss any of the baggage and the one hour monologues and then when I said something it got broadcasted to all out friends and family. The best was the being used part so she come down to our summer house and my hubby would chauffeur them to the beach.

  • I have lost a lot of friends over the years. First some ditched me because I started a family and they were still single. We started to have different interests. Then I grew up and they didn't so that group and I parted ways. As I got older I changed and they changed. Some of them I miss and others I know I am better off without them. Ive made new friends who share the same interests I have now. A lot of the time I am just happier at home now. Friends are great, but they are not everything.
