Once you graduate high school, you see who your real friends are. People change. Someone who you thought was your best friend will cut you off completely. Some of us enter high school with plenty of friends and end with only a few close ones. Others of us enter high school with only a few close friends and end with no friends at all. It’s just how life is. It’s like that sometimes. It sucks but it happens to almost everyone.
real friends // excerpt from a book I’ll never write #14
I’m not even upset, hurt, angry or sad anymore. I’m just tired. I’m tired of putting in more effort than I receive, of holding on for nothing and on people who don’t care about me, of not being good enough, of believing all your lies, of proving me wrong every time and of getting my hopes up and being disappointed again.
Disappointment is coming, for sure! People are going to hurt you in ways you would never have believed even possible. You are going to be let-down and deeply betrayed. And there is only one thing to do when you are tragically let down — let-go. No matter how wrong they were, holding on will not make it right, and it will eat you alive over time. Don’t let them kill you twice. Letting go is the only way. — Bryant McGill
