this summer is all about me.
i’m extremely selfless.. and nothing has ever been solely about myself.
so. when i decided this summer was all about me.
i decided it was also all about this goal.
because in being so ‘selfless’ i realized i was also allowing people to walk all over me and treat me like i didn’t matter.
i also realized these people were my best friends.
so as hard as it was. i burned those bridges.
(or charred them, as it ended up being.)
I let them have it. I told them both I was tired of being treated like I didn’t matter, and I was done letting them walk all over me. I didn’t want to hear from them, I didn’t want them to call or contact me via the interwebs.
And they tried… oh how they tried.
But I stood my ground… and they were perplexed.
And I felt lost… like I had no friends at first. And I grew from it.
From burning those bridges, I built some new ones. Some stronger ones.
Friends that will actually back me up in a fight. Ones that will support me and hold me up, catch me when I’m falling.
And those are the best kinds.
This goal… has made my life infinitely better.
it’s ongoing… but for now… i’ve accomplished it.
