Maybe you could tell her the topics you have been discussing lately are making you feel bad/depressed? That you need some happy talk?I'm realizing something that I've known for a long time (if that makes sense).I have a certain friend who I chat with online daily when I'm at work and we speak on the phone a couple of times a week (it used to be 4-5 days a week but I stopped answering the phone).
I haven't spoken to her in 4 weeks and I do not miss her. One time, just ONE, I thought "oh I can't wait to tell her this"
She's negative and needy and I really don't feel any need to communicate with her. This makes me sad but mostly I just don't know what to do with the feelings. I've known this person for a long, long time so don't think I can just ignore her indefinitely. The slow fade, I guess.
So far this week, she's messaged asking me to consider coming back online early (not when I return to work next week -i won't chat online from home bc it's too much of a time suck for me). She's also called twice.
Being me, that feels like pressure and now I don't want to take her calls at all.
Okay, longer than I thought, I'm done
