Growing up and becoming an adult means you have to start making decisions that will benefit you in the end. It means that sometimes you will have to tell people no or distance yourself from them. It means that if it isn’t bringing positivity and good energy in your life, then it basically serves no purpose.
Life is too short to just keep people around because you have history with them, that’s not enough. If something or someone is bringing you more stress than happiness, then maybe it’s time to weigh out the pros and cons and act accordingly.
You shouldn’t feel like you’re begging someone to do right by you or even reciprocate what you give them. I understand that not everyone thinks the same or knows how to give you what you need, but You have the choice to say that it’s not good enough. I’ll let you move how you move without me. It’s that simple. Don’t get me wrong, just because I can’t fuck with you it doesn’t mean I wish any ill-will towards you. We are just on different pages in life and at the end of the day, my peace is worth it.
It took a while for me to understand this because I’ve always been the person who has to fix other people’s problems, sacrificing my energy and mental space, but when I did, a lot of people thought I wow acting different. Fuck them. I chose me and am on a mission to find peace and happiness and make moves that will benefit me in the long run. I had to leave some people behind because what’s important to me isn’t their version of importance.
Do what’s best for you because at the end of the day you are all you have.
