I thought a little more on your post & I really think you are right. In life we only have so much energy. there are a finite number of hours to the day, days in week, etc. We need to truly surround ourselves with those that help lift us up. I had a friend that was more like a leach than a friend & I had to cut things off (long before hte mc's). I did so because I sat down & calculated how much time (on average) per week was sucked up by her needs & drama. It was more than I should be willing to waste. Time is precious & so are those people you find in this world that are worth your time. Hoard you time wisely & spend it in ways that either help you & those you love or help the world as a whole. Anything else is just a drain on your energy. You are a good person, probably a great friend & you deserve bette rout of a friendship than to question the other person's feelings for you particularly if you are feeling they feel sorry for you. You don't need her pity - you need compassion & caring. If she cannot offer that you probably are better off to let the relationship grow distance. I wish you all the best & anytime you happen to be in my area - come on over for coffee We don't have to live next door to be good friends...
