One of the oddest things I learned in college was that I could pick my friends.
It still doesn’t feel quite right to not be a friend to everyone. But, it’s ok to be friendly & chose not to spend more time/energy than that.
The worst (hardest?) is when you realize you’ve given too much to someone not worthy.. Not worthy of your time, love, you. It is so hard to walk away from that investment. It means that you misjudged. It means that they aren’t who you thought they were. It means they didn’t value you.
And that stings.
I am not good at it.
I am not good at quitting relationships.
I feel guilty.
But, the truth is that I am worthy. I deserve to be around people who value and love me. And that’s ok.
