How do you deal with annoying people who expect more than you can give? I know nobody is perfect but for you living your life there must have been difficult relationships. I would like to know more of what you try to accomplish for yourself. Do you maintain relationships from the past?

Thank you.

Dear Stephanie,

I try to focus on understanding my own emotions and forget about trying to figure out why someone else is acting so weird.  Sometimes I try my best to take a new point of view regarding a difficult friend, especially if they are moody and try to manipulate me into doing more than I am emotionally capable of.  I am not always successful with stressful relationships.  Although I know I can’t fix anyone’s life for them, I keep trying to help.  That doesn’t work well for me and can leave me feeling depressed.

I have maintained very few relationships from my past; I’ve had to let my past go.  However, I’ve kept in touch with certain family members.  I have not shared with many of them that I am the Karen of Switching Time. I treasure all the new friends I’ve made, and continue to make, during the past several years. I let many relationships go from before that time.

Thank you for your questions.

Karen
