How I did it: I had a number of relationships that were toxic in different ways. Some needed cutting out, some needed repairing, and some needed cutting out for a little while in order to repair.
A major relationship needed this time apart, so a major part of this goal was to keep up with this.
Facebook culling was another. I'm one of those people that puts a lot on facebook, and I went through my friends list asking myself certain questions. e.g. "Would I want to share this much of my life with this person?" or even at some points "If I saw this person in the street, would I make an effort to stop and say hi?" and the answer to those questions decided whether they stayed or went. Also, it was important to detach myself from the now commonly held belief that if you unfriend somebody you are mad at them, plain rude and never want to see them again: which in some cases is simply not true.
I found myself focusing on people that mattered more to me, which made me form more positive relationships, and enjoy myself and my company a hell of a lot more. Read how I did it… 2 years ago
