I recently had to cut a certain group of people out of my "inner circle". It was a group of friends that I've shared a lot with, and used to really enjoy being around. As of late, however, a few members of that group made very desparaging (sp?) remarks about my health problems. Some saying "Boy, I wish I could stay home in bed and have a boring day" and "I think I'm going to go on disability too, I'm tired of working...Hey, I'm just kidding, I think I'd kill myself if I couldn't be productive". (Gee, thanks) My point: Just like the wife of the man who made rude comments to Weener said she'd make sure he wasn't there (Great friend, BTW) I've cut this group of people out of my life almost completely. And when I do have to see them, I speak very little. Just let them ramble on. I think cutting these types of people out is good for us. We don't need that negative energy attacking us. So kudos to Weener and her friend, and to the rest of us who have cut out some bad apples from our lives! Anybody else had to "let someone go" so to speak?
