You may lose some...but you find new friends too
Exactly. A lot of people don't want to lose friends, no matter the costs. But losing friends is integral to growing up and maturing. It means you know what you want in your life. It's a good thing.

Yiu have to know when to say "WHEN"! #truth #life #quotes
Givers need to set limits because takers rarely do. Great inspirational quote!
Givers and Takers in Relationships- " I began this series with an introduction of the nature and prevalence of partners in relationships being characterized as givers and takers. Now let me spell out in greater detail the phenomenon of being a Taker in a relationship. The words giver and taker already have some moral weight to them. Most have a sense that it's good to give, and bad to take. We have a build-in reluctance to take the last cookie on the plate, at least without the permission of the hostess or others in the vicinity. Most of us were trained as a child not to take another child's toy. We are (hopefully) taught to curb that 4-year-old ego “I want what I want when I want it - right now!” In the same vein, most of us were trained in the religious virtue of being a “cheerful giver.” (St. Paul, II Corinthians 9:7) So how is it that, with all this cultural emphasis toward “giving” there are so many “takers” out there? Many clients come with a feeling of betrayal that they have done so much “giving” and when they need something, there is nobody to “give” back. Those to whom they have given so much, just take more - and little or nothing comes back. Perhaps it's primary genetic wiring. Perhaps it's early life experience. Perhaps it's parenting. I've seen all three. But there is a street savvy wisdom that emerges, claiming that the only way you're going to get what you want is to “just take it”. And takers can be very attractive people. Some even taking on a folk hero status - perhaps from a hidden resentment that the rest of us can't “do that too.” In our audience sports, we cheer for the one who can get out there and take best. Taking is winning. It's true in the economic world as well - those who can get the most are those who get rewarded the most. In business seminars they are heros for our emulation. Our rock stars know well the persona of the taker is the key to fame and fortune - just ask their managers. In the world of sales, it's the narcissist, the one who thinks solely in terms of his own ego needs, who has the “inner balls” to be the most aggressive and successful salesperson. Paradoxically, they're also the best in posturing as givers. Sometimes it takes a pretty good “BS detector” to tell the difference. I see it most in the subtle emptiness of their relationship abilities. A sad psychological maxim is that takers insist on seeing themselves as givers - and they will be the first to tell you so, and the very last to see themselves as otherwise. In my thirty years of practice, I'd say this has been true about 80% of the time. The process of change for these folks to become less narcissistic, especially for the sake of their domestic relationships, is a lengthy difficult process at best, and counts for almost every grey hair I have (or have lost). The psychological profile of the taker includes a psychological bind that prevents him or her from seeing themselves accurately here. That's why there's always an aura of unreality and/or emptiness surrounding these people. The shell of excitement and success by which they cover and protect this inner sadness is what others “fall in love” with - as many of my clients sadly have come to realize. The sense of betrayal we come to feel when we've been “taken” is often analogous to the inner sense of betrayal the taker carries deep in his or her psyche, but is forbidden by an ancient bind from ever acknowledging. That's why takers characteristically have difficulty with any experience of anxiety (and again, cannot let themselves know this). Warning Signs Here are a few clues - ‘before the wedding', so to speak - that your partner may be a taker. I'll assume here that the taker is a male and the attracted party is a female - though the opposite is frequently the case as well. - When dining out, how does he treat waitresses (or waiters)? And how well does he tip? How he treats service personnel is a pretty accurate barometer how he will eventually be treating you. - In general, how does he treat those of lower social standing? Also, how does he act in the presence of those of higher social standing? - Is he hungry for praise - and grumpy when he doesn't get ‘enough'? - Does he take more than he really needs, when opportunity provides it? - Is there an air of entitlement - that he deserves what he has or wants? - Does he get upset when honestly challenged or criticized? (Be careful here, because the taker can be skilled in transferring or projecting his or her own anger onto the partner, then blaming the partner for being the angry one.) - Here's a specific ‘test': Accuse your partner that he/she lacks empathy. Takers generally lack the capacity for empathy - but don't know it's missing. So they develop a pseudo empathy, and when challenged as I suggest, get very anxious, defensive and angry. The primary key to recognizing a taker is to know yourself well enough that you are not blinded by their skill. The inscription, “Know Thyself,” from the ancient forecourt of the Temple of Apollo at Delphi, still carries its wisdom. I count it as a primary purpose of good psychotherapy to pursue this vital self-knowledge. And in many cases, it entails a difficult struggle".

I'm not sure if I'm depressed... #quote #sadness #emptiness #loneliness
I 'm not sure if I'm depressed. I can joke during the day but I'm sad when I'm alone at night.
That's it exactly. I mean, there's a lot of stuff to laugh about but then when I'm left alone with my thoughts for a second... everything becomes dark around and within me. I remember all the bad things I've ever thought about and how distant the world feels to me. So when someone pulls me back into reality after these moments, I feel as if I woke up from a dream, a vision, the truth... and for a small amount of time everything around me doesn't seem... real.
Sad truth about my life

"Sometimes all you need is 20 seconds of insane courage. Just 20 seconds of embarrasing bravery" from "We bought a Zoo" movie, 2012
I think this inspiring quote is from the movie "We bought a zoo" with Matt Damon.
Wouldn't be dating the man I am now if he didn't take that leap of faith and those 20 seconds of insane courage to ask me to be his. :)
“You know, sometimes all you need is 20 seconds of insane courage. Just literally 20 seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it.” — Matt Damon - We Bought a Zoo
From the movie, We Bought A Zoo. This is an excellent truth!!!

I really love this quote--I love it. He has no idea how many people's lives he changed when he said that. How many girls who felt appreciated, how many boys felt stronger, how many 'nerds' who weren't ashamed to be smart, and how many people thanked him for spilling the truth on national television

I don't think I will ever meet someone that could really compare to you. I could see all sorts of people, and no matter who they are or what they say, they can't capture my attention quite the way you can. They don't make me laugh quite as genuinely. I know people always say your first love is the person you compare everyone to, but maybe they've got it all wrong. Maybe the person you compare everyone to isn't your first love, but your true love. Your soul mate.

It wasn't my first love, it is my soulmate that I compared everyone, too. Don't give up ladies. We're back together!!
You. All day. Every day. I see you in the eyes of every person I see. I hear your voice speak to me. You're all around me. Even when you're not. Iloveyou. #quote #lovequotes #love #cutelovequotes

This reminds me of my ex-husband. He told me so many lies, I began to not believe him. I lost him. I tried to get through to him. I finally, after 13 years, let him go. He made me laugh, but he also made me cry. I do miss him, but he would not let go of the bad. He would not cross over. I'm very sad.
