Over the course of my life there have been times where I’ve lost chunks of friends. Typically, this is because of life. Whether it be moving, changing jobs or just growing apart.
It is a part of life that I honestly have never got used to. Every time it happens, I’m once again surprised and hurt. I will continue to try to rationalize it, comprehend it and blaming myself for what I could’ve done differently.
Maybe sometimes this is all it’s about!! When the moving away is actually because I realized they weren’t good for me and my life anymore.
I’m not perfect, though I try really hard to not speak poorly of others. I aim for compassion and understanding… trust me, way too much understanding. (I ask all the questions) Although, I fully realize that I don’t need to understand.
What I do need though, at 38 years old, is to keep the toxic people out of my life. Ain’t nobody got time for that. After years of learning, I do know that it all comes back around.
My theme for 2019 will be Intentional Living, Live on Purpose! I only need people in my life who will help me achieve this.
