That's got to be a shock, but you've made the right choice and you're doing the right thing. And don't let them make you feel anything but happy that you're no longer going to be a part of that junior high drama.

“There comes a time in your life when you have to choose to turn the page, write another book or simply close it.” ~ Shannon L. Alder

(Of course, as a retired librarian, I especially like this quote about choices we can make.)

I recently discovered that I am involved in a group that is full of drama, name calling, and seems to love drama. I was dragged into this by someone who did not mention me by name but inferred my friend and I were part of a mean conspiracy. This almost cost me a friendship but fortunately one of the ladies called me and asked me outright if I did this thing I was accused of. I am leaving this group this kind of drama I left behind this drama in high school. I feel betrayed and sad but I have a choice and I will not be part of this.

That reminded me of this quote about friends:

“Keep away from those who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you believe that you too can become great.”
~ Mark Twain

Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next.

It is really hard to focus on what is important to us when we are doing everyone else's bidding. Many of us have a hard time keeping in mind that we can't be all things to all people. LOL

I suspect that the definition of "success" might make a difference, but in general, Buffet has a point!

I don't think I was passionately curious as a young person but by the time I hit my 20's I wanted to know why abut everything. I still do and I love the internet for that reason. Oh Joy!

You know, the older I get, the more I wonder if young people have lost the joy of curiosity.... what a pity to my mind, since I’m Thinking that being passionately curious is the basis for almost all scientific inquiry, besides being so much darn fun!

I know what you mean. But the older I get, the more things I want to do and want to learn before my time is up.

Do you think people believe this of us older folks? I know it is true but I remember how I was as a young person thinking a 70 year old was ancient with nothing much left to look forward to. emoticon

I would want the award for being Miss Congeniality.

I wouldn't conquer a person I would conquer my stubbornness.
