I always thought that if I was nice or caring enough that I would be able to hold on to friendships or relationships. But, the truth is no matter how much you try to be there for people you’re going to lose people along the way. Some people are placed in different points of your life as lessons. I’ve lost friends and what I thought was my soul mate, but I refuse to dwell on the past. I always thought this quote was dumb but it holds more meaning to it the older I get.
“Friendship isn’t about whom you have known the longest… It’s about who came, and never left your side.”
I’ve been called a lot of things but a bad person and friend is what I’m not. Many may not like the things I do, but it’s not my job to seek approval from anyone. Everything I have ever done in my life has been a lesson not a regret and will continue to be just that. Communication pertains to anything in life and if all you do is bash someone then why do you continue to talk to them. It’s very immature and if you’re not helping me grow along the way then you’re a toxic person that I don’t need. I don’t bother to hold on to the strands of people because at the end of the day the only person I need on my side is God and family.
So with that if a friend is trying to put you down for not doing enough then keep doing what you do. They obviously have issues within themselves and need to spread their negativity, but don’t let them. If your boyfriend is making you feel you’re not good enough and makes you shed more tears then laughs then let his dumb ass go. You’ll meet great people along the way and many won’t stay for the ride. But as the saying goes, “everyone you lose is not a loss.” I plan on always winning in all aspects of my life with learning many things comes growth. Stay happy and weird everyone!
