Why cutting people out of your life is not a long-term solution.
Because the reality is this: If any community is entirely contingent on your relationship with one other person, it can be temporary.
A best friend who will always be on your side, even when she’s not. A best friend who is not afraid to disagree with you, even if it means you might argue.
I try to imagine what would have happened if you’d not been there during the times I needed someone. It’s difficult to imagine. It would have been difficult without you.
Thank you for recognizing that my healing is not linear.
Just trying to picture myself back then, one thing is for sure: I was toxic.
