Pulling Weeds defines a weed as this:

weed [wid]
1. a valueless plant growing wild, esp. one that grows on cultivated ground to the exclusion or injury of the desired crop.
2. any undesirable or troublesome plant, esp. one that grows profusely where it is not wanted

Now you may be asking why I am blogging about weeds. Well I am not talking weeds as in plants ... I am talking weeds as in people.

I guess with the time approaching of my son being born I was doing so major soul searching of my life; where I am in it and where I would like to be. And one thing that kept coming to mind were people in my life that have held me back or are holding me back from becoming who I really want to be. A weed will kill a beautiful flower, it sucks the life out of it and makes it ugly. I don't want that to happen. I feel like my life is FINALLY on track and getting where I want it, but there is just a few things that need weeded out.

I have a some "weeds" in my life that need pulling, but my questions is how do you do it? It's not like breaking up with someone to where you can be like "Look this isn't working out so how about you go your way and I'll go mine?" How do you "break up" with a someone who isn't a lover? But you know that once this is done your life will finally be on track? UGH --- Has this ever happened to you?

hmm..this is hard. I can't say that I know the "right" way. But in general, I just put distance, distance, distance. You've got two kiddos to focus on and you certainly don't have time to waste on people who are keeping you down. You have so much light in your life, anyone who is holding you down should be pulled like a weed! I totally agree!!!

I second Lindsay's comment. Distance is the best way to start, I think.
