39. Ending a relationship/friendship. People get flack all the time for this, like you must be selfish and heartless to end things. If you wait too long, their feelings can escalate to a point where it may really hurt the other person if you wait any longer than necessary. Also, what are you supposed to do, just stew in your misery and build resentment for months/years/decades with a person just to avoid hurting them short term? It’s better for both parties if you end things before they get any worse.
40. Refusing to drink with a group or otherwise get fucked up. Thankfully I’ve since found better friends.
