“We live in an age where we feel guilt whenever we have to cut someone off but the reality is that some relationships do need to die, some people do need to be unfollowed and defriended. We aren’t meant to be this tethered to the people in our past. The Internet mandates that we don’t burn bridges and keep everyone around like relics but those expectations are unrealistic and unhealthy. Simply put, we don’t need to know what everyone else is up to. We’re allowed to be choosy about who we surround ourselves with online and in real life, even if it might hurt people’s feelings.”
— Ryan O’Connell, You Don’t Have To Be Friends With Everybody
Sometimes it just takes me time to understand things. But I understand. Funny how quotes and images and feelings just spring forth out of nowhere from the depths of the internet at just the right moment.
Life is so good again. Everything feels exactly as before. Only maybe I’ve lost a little structure but that’s easily regained. And goals must once again be set in motion. Because I have so many aspirations and life is so very beautiful to me. There’s so much I want to do and nothing that can stop me.
