I had a difficult conversation today and even though it was painful I think it might be the thing I needed to come to a realization.
Some people are never going to change. There comes a time in relationships when you have to decide if you can get over a hurt moment between you or if you decide to just move on. For me, it always boils down to the depth of the relationship. I think I realized today that you can’t salvage something that wasn’t real. You can’t build something back up if it was built on a foundation of falsehoods.
Maybe this is just about my own personal growth and literally “growing up” but something about this situation feels different. For the first time in my entire life, I’m walking away from something that devastated me knowing that I held my head high and I was true to myself all the way through.
So today I can really say with conviction, “Yes, I was burned but I call it a lesson learned.”
It’s alright. It’s alright.
