Continuation of my last friendship post

Picking the people you want in your life and not keeping the ones that hold you back. That is what the last 2 years have been about for me.

Pre having B in my life I realized that I was in a "holding" pattern of dating seriously awful men. Men who said cruel things, did cruel things and yet I still held on. Sometimes I look back at those times in my life and I think "WHO THE HELL WAS I TO PUT UP WITH THAT BS?" I feel like an entirely different person than I used to be. I guess what they say is true - if it doesn't kill you, it makes you stronger.

I have done the same with friends. I just don't know how to truly explain the freeing feeling. I just think sometimes you have to truly look at your life and see who lifts you up and who doesnt.

I agree! I think as I've grown older (and wiser I hope!), I'm able to really see which friendships are worth investing time in!

Thanks so much. Such a great reminder that the true friends last and that when you let go of the guys who give you loads of BS you're free to receive what you really deserve :)
