Whether you have recently split up or are in receipt of your Decree Absolute, it’s worth investing a time when deciding if you want to hang out with a group of friends.
A toxic group that have nothing better to do with themselves than whoop up a hate campaign, are simply that, toxic. They will dampen your already depleted effervescence in their futile and thoughtless attempts at making you feel better. They are likely to leave you feeling that you have a complete inability to make a decent judgement on what constitutes a decent partner and even if that’s true, you don’t need your nose rubbed in it while you’re still bleeding.
Conversely, a well meaning group of chums who have your best interests at heart might also wreak havoc on your emotions with relentless hugging and tears and by laying the, ‘Aww, still there’s plenty of other fish in the sea’ comments at your feet; if only you fancied going out with a fish eh!
The group mentality is a unique one and it is often led by a noisy individual. Ideally, you should be running on at least three cylinders before making rash decisions to be a member of the pack.
