Podcast – True friends Written by B. True friends Share this:FacebookTwitterPinterestMoreLinkedInLike this:Like Loading... 21 thoughts on “Podcast – True friends” I needed to hear this, today, as a person who was a friend, briefly, cut off all contact, in a fit of pique. That person has very little and has a history of abandonment, but as I examine myself, I see that when a person is in trouble, I do everything I can to help. When the person is doing well, I am happy for them, though I do not always show it, as effusively as the person wants.

Sometimes it happens out of jealousy for who we are (or have become)… and this is sad but teaches us who are the ones who truly care about us. Thank you for sharing! I do appreciate it a lot! 🤗🤗🤗 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Why so short? Aww, such a lovely voice, but big pauses between the thoughts. Try to correct that. It has a greater dynamic. 😀 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thank you so much for your feedback! I do appreciate it loads!! 🤗🤗🤗 I will try (I don’t have a script, and I try not to, to preserve the spontaneity of the thought, still I need to eliminate those long silences, yes) LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I know, that’s what I would do, but I would also practice to be compact and not leave blanks so people can suspect that podcast is prematurely over.

But it is usually with my ex-wife, we are still very good friends and amicable. So, I know there is a different dynamic to her and my friendship being that we’re ex-lovers. As good friends, we never talk to each other about current love relationships or throw those in each others’ face. We’ve just never been that malicious with each other’s heart. But I do wish sometimes she would just tell me of her relationships rather than me finding out about them secondhand and getting jealous or pissed off or whatever. She will say, “Oh no, I’m not seeing anyone” and therefore giving me hope or something like it that there’s a reconciliation chance or something. Know what I mean? Sometimes I think it would be better for her and I to just cease communication about anything altogether and go our separate ways.

Hard to do but necessary for both sake… LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I do agree. I think I’ve been holding on for something that just isn’t going to happen again. I really don’t think it can. I mean, yeah, we talk and still share, but we don’t share the most important parts of who we are. I think I’ve always known there’s no chance but didn’t want to face that. I think you’re right. And I have distanced myself somewhat, but not completely. And I think she was a good experience but one that’s passed. I think she depends also on my being there – sort of on her back burner, you know? I think distancing will be much easier now because she moved permanently to another state. I’m in Tennessee and she’s now in Texas. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Well, physical distance helps but doesn’t do entirely the trick. Only needs to be strong inside LikeLiked by 1 person Reply True. We still call and talk and all. But I know it’s time to let go. Hell, it’s been time! lol LikeLiked by 1 person 🤗🤗🤗 LikeLiked by 1 person It’s just hard sometimes because she’s the only relationship that I feel I’ve done more or less “right”. LikeLiked by 1 person Look, I learned something (being the clingy person that I am), the more we cling on something or someone that is gone the less we can welcome the new and positive yet to come. Try and trust! LikeLiked by 1 person Yeah, you’re right. I hear ya. LikeLiked by 2 people I actually have had a few girlfriends since my divorce and, you’re right. I didn’t let myself love and care for and fall for these other women. I was still hung up, sadly, on my ex.
