You have always been really good about keeping your circle small. But the beauty of your 40s is that it is more than acceptable to remove the toxic people from your life. Surround yourself with those who edify you and build you up. Keep the positive, uplifting friends nearby to celebrate the victories in your life and clear out the negative, the nay sayers, the folks who have no stake in your success. You have always been better at this than me. But it's a good rule to hang onto for your 40s. It is great to be a giver but after 40, it's time to reap a bit of the reward for your goodness, your kindness, and your faithfulness.
