The Value of Friendship

“The value of a relationship is in direct proportion to the time that you invest in the relationship.”

Brian Tracy


Thinking along these lines a lot the last couple of weeks, not only are Toxic Relationships bad for you, so are ones where people treat you carelessly. If you allow it, things can escalate to where these friends dictate when and where they can come and see you and if you tell them you are busy, THEY get offended. Often too, these friends will invite you over, for coffee or a meal, and you end up literally mowing their lawn. However, when you ask them to come and help you with something it is an issue and they begrudgingly may condescend to help, but you will hear about the big sacrifice they made in order to help you.  When you have a need to talk about a problem, they will listen impatiently and then go on for a long time about their huge problems, which are relatively minor compared to what you are facing.

All these things are very bad for your self esteem and self worth, so in order to be, serene and sober person, my Strange Classrooms tell me; something must be done about this.

I am not sure at this point what I should do about these type of friends, but I do know that one day they may notice that this Gypsy is just, not around anymore. I did coin a phrase years ago,

“If you cannot see my worth, you then, in turn are worthless to me.”

A compilation of my Strange Classrooms is soon to be released, please “Like” and  keep an eye on this page.


Here is a story of developing and breaking an addiction, while dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome at the same time.
