I think people who hurt you are easy to forgive, but people who make you hate yourself will never be forgiven. That control they have causes you to be in constant fear of them, but also in constant need of their approval. That is why we need to shut them out.
“I no longer have the energy for meaningless friendships, forced interactions or unnecessary conversations. If we don’t vibrate on the same frequency there’s just no reason for us to waste our time. I’d rather have no one and wait for substance than to not feel someone and fake the funk.”—(via unlively)
