You can tolerate them in large doses

Remember those friends from your twenties who were total train wrecks, brought way too much nervous energy around, and whom you could only tolerate in small doses? As you get to be older you think, “If I can only tolerate someone in small doses, then maybe they’re not a compatible friend for me.” So you remove them from your life, and allocate that new, extra time to friends you can tolerate in large doses.
