Queen of Your Own Life

Deserve | The Battle for You

by Kathy Kinney

Deserve.  Repeat after us, “Today I’m going to take a look at the friendships in my life that cause me pain. I have the courage necessary to gently let these hurtful friends go.  I deserve to be surrounded by kind, trustworthy, agenda free friends who support and love me.

I had a very close friend take a break from reality a few years ago and accuse me of many things that I hadn’t done.  I worked hard for a long time to clean up the situation but my friend was determined to think badly of me.  There has been a lot of pain as I have grieved the loss of the friendship but as with all things I have gained much as well.  I now know that I deserve the best friends the world has to offer.  I will attract these people into my life by being the kind of friend to others that I wish for myself.  So sayeth the Queen.

    Amen to this. I decided this a few months back when I took a long look at some people who I was calling friends. I realized it was part of my overall problem of putting myself last and even trying to please people who were downright mean to me, or had taken advantage of me. How sick is that? Thanks to your book I realized a smart Queen knows who to have in her court and who does not belong there. Once again you’ve changed my life and my outlook. It felt great to surgically remove those who were not proper ladies in waiting. 😉
    I love you two!

    It’s it funny, Queen Kathy, how we often ignore our own feelings that “something isn’t right” in a relationship. And when we take care of ourselves, we feel so much better!

    As unpleasant as it was for me, I had finally come to the end of my rope with one of my friends. I am 42 and i dont have alot of friends i consider close, so eliminating this particular one was definately a huge desision for me. Trouble had been going on for years and finally one day after what I consider the ultimate betrayal from her, I just quietly left the relationship.

    These decisions are sometimes hard to make and sometimes so clear that they are easy. But in the end, leaving a troubled friendship is better for everyone. Thank you for sharing Lori.
