F.R.I.E.N.D.S (???)

How do you know if it’s time to cut a person off of your life?

Seriously. Does the standard “pros and cons list” apply? Can you really pit “gives great advice” against “doesn’t pay debt?” Hell if I know.

I would say I have just about the right number of friends for an introvert. In truth though, I think I can count on my fingers which of them are real. But the real problem is, I don’t know if those who aren’t counted as “real” are worth keeping. I just can’t tell if the good outweighs the trouble they cause me, and it’s just not petty stuff, mind you. Some of them really affect my mental state. I’m really considering taking this matter to a shrink or something.
