Cut Accomplished!

I have made a friends/community cut.

I warned for sometime before I actually got around to it. I mostly cut people that I never hear from anymore or whose journals appear to be dead. Basically if they didn't answer my "I'm about to cut everybody" post and never commented on any of my sacred sharing posts, they were cut.

If you were cut and really wish you weren't, just speak up and let me know.

There are also others I'm considering cutting but hesitant to because we *used* to talk. I'll see if this cut helps my time issue, and if not, I may do a second round. So speak up if you're wanting to hang out, and feel free to move on if you're not.

Hopefully this means I'll catch up on my f-list better. :)

I went from:

152 LJ friends to 123 LJ friends

64 communities to 54 communities

I cut like 20 yahoo groups

and unsubscribed from 5 newsletters I never read anymore

I even cleaned out all my emails' address books (releasing high school boyfriends, people whom I could no longer even remember, etc...talk about cutting bonds and emotional spam!) Cleaning out the actual inboxes will be next, but I haven't gotten quite that much motivation yet.


WHEW!

Wow, that's a lot of purging. Did you cut the yahoo groups competely or just go 'no mail'? I usually go 'no mail' thinking when I'm bored I'll go read the messages on the site.. and then years go by and I never do. LOL I should really 'cut' that habit.

I cut about a dozen, and went to Special Notices on several others. A couple of them are dead but I keep them for the files & archives, and a couple of them are just like monthly mailing lists.

LOL of course you are!

I haven't been able to keep up, which is part of the problem. I'll take that awesome and claim it, though, with much appreciation! ;)

Hi again, and thank you! I'd be happy to add you back again. I really debated whether to keep you or not, but I didn't think you were around anymore. Sorry about that! (and congratulations and good luck on the doula work!)

You may want to look into the book "Getting Things Done" by David Allen. I've finally begun to really get into it and its paying huge dividends

I'll see if I can find it at the library. I've been accomplishing some things lately, and it feels good. :)

Thanks!

you really shouldn't feel so guilty about cutting people. It's excess baggage you don't need in your life, and if you go around worrying about what other people might think is or isn't best for you, you may never figure out which end is up (though I'm sure you have an idea, just an expression)

I just think, if you want to cut, cut who you want to cut. I do that sometimes with my real life friends, except I don't tell them. Sometimes I just realize, hey, your energy is weighing me down. Now is the time to realize what is absolutely best for you, and if it compliments what is best for others as well.

I don't feel guilty at all, so I'm not sure what gave you that impression. I try to be open when I add or drop anyone, and if someone wishes to remain on they only need to speak up. I do a lot of f-locked posts, so that's why I say that. Nobody's really been weighing me down. I've just overextended myself (especially given that I don't have a computer of my own anymore), so I'd rather have time to devote to the connections I have made.

Holy crap, that's a lot of friends! I have less than 30. No wonder it takes you a long time to get through your f-list, that's huge!

As always, I wish to stay. I'm fairly certain you are aware of that. :)

I finally posted again. :) It's a mini-mountain climbing adventure that I think you would enjoy.
