I no longer have the energy for meaningless friendships, forced interactions or unnecessary conversations.
The truth is, I pretend to be a cynic, but I am really a dreamer who is terrified of wanting something she may never get.
Codependency isn’t sexy. It isn’t romantic. It’s built with a fuse and will surely burn out. The healthiest thing you can say to the one you love is, “I would be okay without you, and that’s why I choose to stay.”
When we are no longer able to change a situation - we are challenged to change ourselves.
But you keep the promise anyway. That’s what love is. Love is keeping the promise anyway.
