Breaking up is hard to do...a prickly situation
But after that, I have to start my alienation plan again. I don't want to. I wish she would get the hint that I don't have time for more neediness in my life. But she doesn't get the hint. My therapist tells me that I should write her an email to say "I'm sorry, but I am very involved. I don't have time to give to a new friendship." It feels mean to me, but it is true. I'm not allowed say "right now" or "at this time" because it will give her hope that another time I would be open to friendship with her. What do you think? Should I send it?
Have you ever had to break up with a friend? Do you have any advice?
