I have been assessing the people that are present in my life and have come to this conclusion. Here are a few examples:
Friend 1 --I am supposed to be meeting with a friend this evening for dinner. But when I got up this morning I realized that I do not feel like listening to her endless chatter about some guy that's been in her life now for about a year. This is how our conversations normally go. I listen, making minimal comments and at the end o fthe conversation she says "so's how's your family doing?" By then I'm too exhausted listening to her to go into any details about how we are doing.
Friend 2 -- Her kids are always yelling in the background when I try catching up with her to make matters worse, she's always interrupting our conversations. It's annoying and rude. So I don't really talk to her anymore. And she repeated somethings that I told her about work to someone that could get me fired.
Friend 3 -- Our conversations are always about work (we are in the same field). She's forever complaining about where she works. She's a very nice person, sometimes I would just like to know how she is doing outside of all the work drama. It takes too much energy to keep the conversations off of work with her though.
That's enough. I just think that I'm at a point in my life where I need to talk to people that I haven't known that long. Maybe my current relationships are just boring. I don't know. What do you think?
