I recently blocked ALOT of people from my Facebook profile. I don’t hate these people. It was just time to break all ties. I don’t need to know what’s going on in their lives and they don’t need to be in mine.
One of my friends compared this to cleaning out my closet. As I clean out my closet I get rid of clothes and shoes that don’t fit, are out of style or are just plain wore out. I think I have done this with people recently. Some friends just don’t fit into my life anymore. It may be that their lives include things that just don’t fit me. Maybe they lead a different lifestyle from mine that just doesn’t fit me. Others may still be the same as they have been for the past twenty years, and I’m not. Their style is just not mine anymore. And of course there are those people who have just worn me out. I don’t have time in my closet for their drama, so I have thrown them out. There is another category-The “What was I thinking when I bought this” t-shirt. It looked so good at the store, but when I got it home I just sat in the closet with the tags still on it. People can be like that too. I may have thought they were great at first, but when I let them in my life, I saw them in an entirely different life.
Of course my old friends, like my favorite pair of sweats and a t-shirt have their permanent place in my closet.
