I guess it's a good thing that I did not let this thought float on by...so in the words of Whodini:
"Friends, how many of us have them, friends, the ones you can depend on, let's be Friends!"
I have really good friends. Most of my friends I do not talk to on a daily basis, one maybe two. And, I have the same relationship with them that I have with the friends that I may only talk to once a month or every few months, or even every few years.
The best kind of friend for me is one that can easily pick the flow back up, after a long period of not talking to one another.
Unfortunately, some people don't get that. Some people think that friendship means that you owe them something. Some time. Some showy display. Even agreement is not something that is guaranteed between friends.
This whole clinging thing, the letting go of thoughts, events, and energy to free your soul...this process, I would think, includes people.
Or is this a double edged sword? There are toxic relationships, violent both mentally and physically, that a person should move from for survival. I just don't doubt that fact.
After cutting one person out of my life who (at the time) I would have labeled as toxic, another said to me....your energy just seems to be glowing since you stopped hanging around with so and so.
And she was right. Cutting that person out of my life was a very deeply felt and learned lesson in forgiveness and letting go. I forgive you, I wish you the best, and I am thankful that you did what you did, because I grew from that experience. But I don't need to hang out with ya anymore!
One friend had the nerve to tell me once, That I did not know who I WAS ANYMORE. When the truth of the matter was, I was becoming more and more comfortable with Self, thus making you less and less comfortable with me. ABRAHAM says that as you change your vibration, the experiences you have and the people you meet will also change. I like that.
But what does one do when you have a friend, a good person, in general, with whom you just do not have much in common with anymore? The old things that kept your friendship going just do not make sense anymore.
Here is my confusion. Letting go can mean many things. It can mean, letting go of the behavior of another person and not allowing it to bother you, or it can mean letting go of the person, simply spending little to no time with them.
Which do you choose, or do you choose to do both? Or, does the simple act of not allowing the behavior bother you, by continuing to release it, does it bring about some sort of transcendence in the relationship? Or, as ABRAHAM says, will you just begin to vibrate on different levels and that very act will cause not only you to attract other friends, but by the law of attraction, they will too? No hard feelings? Yea well I got one who has hard feelings.....
But I am going to do my best to keep letting it go.
Today I am grateful for good friends oh hell and the bad ones too, you get something from them all.
