You know you get to choose your friends, right? You don’t HAVE to be friends with anyone. And you definitely don’t HAVE to keep up relationships with which you feel ambivalent or unsure. The last year and half for me has been tumultuous as far as relationships go. Well, as far as life goes, really, but relationships for now.I have cut people out of my life, I have had people cut me out of their lives. I have created distance with people and they with me. I have also taken in new relationships and grown those I already have. All of this change has taught me that my relationships are my choice. I choose who I want to take up space with me. I don’t feel bad about leaving people out who aren’t making that a better space to be.
