The Worst in You

There is always some person who has the ability to bring out the worst in you. Sometimes it's a person who has made you angry, provoked you or rubbed you the wrong way. Other times it's someone you've known for a long time and care for but the end result is still the same.

I hate it when I'm around someone like this. I don't like the person I become. I think I need to socialize with new folks.

Every few years, it's a good idea to step back and assess the relationships in your life. Sometimes, we continue in a relationship simply because we've grown used to it. It's a routine almost to hang out with a certain group of people or what have you.

I've found that when I step back and review the relationships in my life, I sometimes see that some of them no longer work. I've grown in a different direction or, like you, I realize that certain people don't bring out the best in me.

I'm glad I could help Jaime. I know how difficult it is to make the choice to end a friendship, even when it's not a good one. I'm proud of you for recognizing and acting on the need to be free of this kind of hurt and pain. Kudos.
