  1. I’m porous now (after YEARS of self-work) and therefore my friend doesn’t leave a sediment behind. So I am able to be myself with her because there’s no possibility of irritation
    Even a year ago, my self protection would have been aroused and I wouldn’t either have let her share or would have jumped to solve her problems (or the worst) avoid her
    Now I barely remember our conversations and she says I am the best friend anyone can hope to have 😳 …. so ……

  2. As I see that the more you make yourself difficult for people around you; the more you thicken their insecurities – I have been seeing myself progressively feeling the urge to be easy on people.

  3. Well, we’re all indirectly or directly influenced by them as the yardsticks of satisfaction of others turn into our own yardsticks

  4. Their insecurities affect my relationship with them. I have a cousin who is so over-emotional, the littlest thing can make her cry and obsess for days. I know she genuinely feels distress over this little thing but having to console and reassure her EVERY TIME makes me not want to be around her. It’s energetically draining. Alternately, I know that MY self-esteem insecurity sometimes rears it’s ugly head and other people feel the need to “give me advice” to deal with it, which I don’t want. This turns into irritation and they get miffed. Badness all around.
