Hi, Hey, Hello!
The company you keep is kind of everything. But it is also the hardest thing there is. It is something that has to evolve over time as you change and adapt and grow. And that is where it gets hard.
Having to accept that for your own sanity and mental health/wellbeing that you have to let some people go is hard. Especially if at some point they helped you along the way and were a crucial part of your journey. And it’s somehow even harder when they haven’t. When they somehow aren’t all that good for you they seem to be harder to let go of.
For whatever reason they seem to remind you of something that is a little bit negative and for some reason it is easier to dwell in the negative and exist within what has somehow become comfortable then to face the reality that really that person is not good for you and you need to cut them out of your life.
I have had to cull some people out of my life on many occasions. And it was hard at the time, but as I look back on it now I realise that it did wonders for my mental health and overall wellbeing that I just didn’t notice at the time. But the change is there.
And it means that I appreciate those that I do have around me all the more because for the most part they are people who largely make me feel really good about myself and lift me up and I like to think that I do it for them.
The people that you surround yourself with are super important and I am very lucky that I have people around me that I can be myself around and who understand that sometimes what I really want is to kind of not be a person for a little bit while I just try to get through some stuff.
I would for sure go a little bit mad without them.
