So true. Thank you for sharing. I'm sure your insight will help many people going through bc right now. I also was extremely selective about the people I kept close to me throughout treatment. And I have to say one of the things I learned from that experience is that although I'm more tolerant now in some ways, I'm very INtolerant of people who put out negative energy all the time. I'm empathetic to anyone who has anxiety, depression, or even a bad day, and will do whatever I can to try to be helpful, but I no longer spend time with people who disturb my peace by gossiping and being unkind.
Hugs & prayers,
