Losing more so-called friends – resolution for 2022

Why I have no friends

I have written about ‘friends’ before and what friendships mean to me. Since that time I’ve been thinking about this. More recently I attended a conference somewhere in the UK – at which I met people who are friendly. So that got me thinking some more. Just to be clearRead More

Friend or fool!

This is not a joke or paradoxically intended to be jokey. This is a summary of reasons why I suffer and sack fools who distribute my private email address. I thought I’d put this together so that I can hyperlink it to those who are let into my inner circleRead More

Disregard of my right to privacy…and my time…by my so-called friends

I’ve been fighting a battle with people I know, some who would feel slighted if I did not consider them friends – for the past 7 years. This is what it is about: I inform all who know me not to send my email (or other contact details) out toRead More
