I'm not insensitive, but I am not changing me to become what you think I should be. I am me, and I am comfortable with me. If you're not, then you're not for me. Doesn't matter if you're friends, family, co-worker, etc....I still get along with everyone, but I pick and choose who gets my quality time. My circle has shrunk, and I've never been happier!
  • Drama-free 40s! The realization that I am in control of how I react to others, has made for a lot more happiness in my life. I will gladly help you as much as I can with your stress, anxiety, and drama, but I refuse to take it on and make your problem s my existence.
