Awhile ago I wrote this post and recently I was reminded of it when talking to someone yesterday and trying to impart some form of wisdom to them. The original post was a list of things I wanted to achieve this year in order to gain myself again and I’m proud to say I am achieving a lot of them. Having been so unhappy for so long and being a victim everyday, its nice to finally feel comfortable again in my own skin.
Having realised today that you can talk and talk at someone and if they choose to continue being a victim of their own circumstances there is nothing you can do to save them. So as much as it hurts me to do so, I have to walk away from the situation and from them.
I’m done with having negative people in my life, I’m done with talking and trying to make some see the error of their ways despite providing numerous forms of evidence that this person they are with is a bad egg and I’m tired of telling someone to grow the fuck up and take a shred of responsibility for their life and that of their child.
So here’s to walking away and being a heroine in your own life, because at the end of the day you are the person you spend the most time with, you may as well make you a fun one to be around.
Maybe in time this person will realise that the drugs, the drink and the idiot she’s let into her bed were not worth losing her daughter, family and friends for.
