The ones who are there to remind you the worst thing that can ever happen to you, the worst thing you can ever do, the biggest mistake you can ever make, they’ll be there.
They will remind you over and over again of your progress and how much you are loved
Your real friends won’t sugarcoat the truth. They won’t lie to you just to make you feel better. They are going to tell you the harsh reality of any situation you find yourself in. Because they know you better than you know yourself.

Maybe I am just a grudge holder, but I think it is extremely important to acknowledge toxic people and know when, and how, to escape before the Final Friend Shit Show has its grand finale.
But the fact of the matter is that any type of relationship can be toxic if it isolates, manipulates, or hurts you. Don’t let people invalidate that. It’s okay to call it what it is: abusive. It’s okay to walk away when you recognize it.

Do not hold any space in your heart for those who are not showing up to claim it. Instead, open yourself to the world, and allow for it to fill that space with the kinds of people, the kinds of moments, and the kinds of experiences that exhilarate you, that compel you — that make you love yourself.
