I don’t think people love me. They love versions of me I have spun for them, versions of me they have construed in their minds. The easy versions of me, the easy parts of me to love.

hi paul?

sad because I’m lonely and I don’t mean it in a “I want a boyfriend” type of way. I just want to connect with someone and vibe with them. I want someone to want to understand me and want me in the same way. I see a lot of girls and they say what they look for in a guy like money, looks etc. I mean that is important to an extent. But what I look for is just someone who I have that click with. I don’t want to care about the future aka marriage and babies. I just want you now. Who cares about forevers. Who cares what could happen. I want an equal mutual understanding relationship. I could care less about the material things. I just want you entirely.

& it’s not like I’m not fine being by myself. I’m not a prize either and I know I have a lot to work on. It would just be nice to have someone to support you and be with you on good and bad days.

Not all toxic people are cruel and uncaring. Some of them love us dearly. Many of them have good intentions. Most are toxic to our being simply because their needs and way of existing in the world force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness. They aren’t inherently bad people, but they aren’t the right people for us. And as hard as it is, we have to let them go. Life is hard enough without being around people who bring you down, and as much as you care, you can’t destroy yourself for the sake of someone else. You have to make your wellbeing a priority. Whether that means breaking up with someone you care about, loving a family member from a distance, letting go of a friend, or removing yourself from a situation that feels painful — you have every right to leave and create a safer space for yourself.
