One of the things I’ve realized as I’ve gotten older is that, relationships of any kind should be easy. They shouldn’t be hard or riddled with fighting, they shouldn’t bring you down, drain you of your energy, or suck the life out of you. And if you’re ever in a place where you feel that way, make a change. Cut out the toxic people in your life and you don’t owe them an explanation as to why. From your significant other relationships to friendships - they should be easy. My group of girlfriends since highschool, all together I think I’ve had 1 or 2 fights maximum with each of them and we’ve been friends for 10 years. Our energies mix well and we know and love each other. There are people who will come into your life for lessons and reasons but sometimes they are only meant to be there for a short time.
So remember to take care of yourself, be a kind and good person, surround yourself with people who’s energy mixes well with your own and remember, it doesn’t have to be hard. And don’t let anyone hurt you or make you feel guilty for protecting your own energy and space.
