Default Feel freed from toxic acquaintance

I finally eliminated a toxic acquaintance who was also a very bad alcoholic and was turning into a drug addict. She constantly tried to get me tipsy and drink more than I wanted and would get mad if I didn't. Also she would post photos of alcohol on my facebook timeline and talking about getting smashed. Along with a bunch of other problems such as her passing out more than once and not taking people's advice and warnings.

Since I now have a job, especially one that involves working in a high school, and just my need to be happier too, I can't afford to have that kind of person in my life. Had to block her too in order to prevent her from posting bad stuff on my facebook. I did warn her about that at first but she didn't respect that and said I was acting weird and paranoid and that no one cares if you post stuff like that. She always made me feel like crap too.

Since I could no longer tolerate her toxic behavior on top of her being an alcohol and drug addict, I decided to remove her completely from my life. She doesn't seem to really care either which I am glad. She did make a couple attempts to hang out since she had no one else to be with but I declined. She was not worth trying to keep in touch with.

I will say now that I cut her out, I feel happier and more relieved. I don't feel like I am on edge and waiting for something bad to happen. I do feel bad that it had to end that way. If she had been a better person and was not so rude and condescending to me and even other people, then I could have maintained a casual friendship with her. But oh well, hope one days she will realize her toxic behavior and alcoholism is destructive and maybe she will change in the future. But now it is time to move on.

Thumbs up Re: Feel freed from toxic acquaintance

Congratulations on making this positive move, rdgrad15. The Skeezyks recalls having read some of your previous posts with regard to this person. I have the sense it has taken a while for you to reach this point. But what had to be done... had to be done...

Yes it has taken awhile. I tend to give people too many chances and tend to be too nice. But yeah, I am glad I removed her from my life. I feel much happier. Thank you.
