Blog 49 That Old Yuck Feeling

You always feel obligated to respond to them, so whenever they call, or send a text, you respond. But afterwards you always come away with that “yuck’ feeling deep in the pit of your stomach. Maybe the conversation didn’t energize you, or may even have depressed you, but it’s more than that. It’s a more visceral response. You may actually get a feeling of foreboding, that vague sense that the other person is really trying to hurt you.
My advice is that — if that’s the case — run very fast in the other direction.
These people may even have been close to you at one point, but they may now have served their purpose in your life. Sooner, rather than later, wish them well and move on. Keeping people in your life past their expiration date only leads to anguish. This is not about you. It is about them and their own insecurities. So listen closely to that “yuck” feeling and move on.
