It's time to separate the wheat from the chaff.

It's the tenth annual "National Unfriend Day". I'm all about this and I hope you are too.

Let's start at the top. It's just social media. I'm sure some people will get a little butthurt that you are no longer on their friend's list, but it will be okay. If things get too weird you can always pretend that it was an accident or something.

Still, you need to do this for your mental health. It's not good for you to be constantly aggravated by someone you once considered a friend. Deep diving into that, if you really have so many differences, and they really aggravate you that much, are they really a friend?

We've all had to cut ties with friends. Sometimes it's because they have issues that you can just be around, say they drink and you no longer do, or something of that nature. You may have had to let married friends drift away because you're single or vice-versa. It's all okay, we all grow in different ways and it's not always together.

You are probably in a situation much like myself where you have way too many people on your friends list, but there's only a dozen or so that you've actually hung out with. Maybe it's time to cull those folks who don't contribute anything to your life, and especially those who give you grief.

I've done all this and axed some people I've known for almost 40 years. It's okay, I wouldn't have axed them if I felt like I really knew them anymore. People grow and change and maybe it's time you do too.

Happy National Unfriend Day.
