(I must really want to go back to October because I continuously start typing October for all of my dates.)
You know, sometimes decisions that we make hurt others. Not because they are wrong decisions (and no one is to judge if a decision is wrong or right, really) but because they don't understand. (Either they are choosing not to listen and comprehend or they literally just don't understand or both) They aren't where we are therefore they can't relate.
There are people (friends or acquaintances) that will be a part of your life permanently, just for a season, or perhaps just for a moment. Cherish the time that you do have, when you have it. Sometimes, it's simply time to move forward and we have to leave some people behind. If/when that time comes that you have to make decisions and part ways from certain people, know that it will better YOURSELF and YOUR LIFE. You are not the only person that has ever had to cut ties with someone and felt like crap. When you think that "no one understands and feels the way you do" ... SOMEONE HAS FELT THAT EXACT SAME WAY. You are never alone. Someone, somewhere has felt the same way. Try to steer away from those lovely self pity parties that we tend to soak up quickly and choose to be strong.
Some people are toxic to have in your life. You can still love them but it's vital for you to be apart in order to go on. Decisions, such as these, will help you grow as an individual.
Be content with your decision(s). Be confident. It's great if you know what you want but EVEN BETTER if you know what you don't want.
Live. Life. Out. Loud.
