    It Was Time

    I decided to go through my circle. I have been here almost a year, I  had a large circle but few if any really spoke to me. I have met some really great people here, if you are no longer in my circle it is because you never talked to me, or I had tried to speak to you but...

    Just A Few

    Sometimes It's Necessary

    It starts innocently enough. You add a few people and then a few more and then one day you look and there are people in your circle that not only don't you speak with, you don't even recall adding them. Whats the point in that? For me its much more about quality than quantity...

    Several Times

      Every now and again I downsize my circle. I don't really like to do it but there are cases where it is really needed.  Sometimes friends have left, sometimes they just arent online anymore, some became toxic and some our paths and journey's have changed. ...

    I prefer getting to know a person first before adding them to my circle and becoming friends with them. What I need to know is if I'll be accepted for who I am - good and bad.
