Saturday's with Stef: Friendships

12:00 AM

The last few months have been filled with growing pains. Making changes, changing, evolving. I realized that my circle of friends got super-duper small.

I am so okay with that.

Realizing that some friendships aren't meant to carry over into my 30's is completely okay. I have kissed so much of these people's asses that NOW, I don't care. They make NO effort anyways. I cannot keep trying to keep people in my life that dont make effort when God is pulling me into a different direction.

It all started when I began to lose weight. The skinny friends that once found me as an ego boost now see me as competition. 

I am NOT competeing with any woman or anyone. I am grown. If someone cant be happy for me and this new life, then in all honesty, they arent even a friend and never were.

Now I didn't come to this over night. I've been praying on it, crying over it, talking about it since it started. The things some people do to hurt me because they are jealous is beyond disgusting. I knew I needed to distance myself from some.

It's hard, thinking people are always going to be your friends, when in reality, they wont. Some are just temporary friends to lead you to the real friends.
