sometimes, the best thing we can do is let go of our attachments to people and let everything fall apart & see who comes out with us on the other side. more often than not, we end up finding new friends and family when we allow ourselves to let go. but before we do we end up dealing with a lot of pain & feelings of loneliness. if you are in this phase of life now, know that you aren’t alone. I think there’s a great way to battle this and it’s to find connection via volunteering or support groups or finding something that you’re into and hitting up meetups.com. there’s ways to connect, and i’m talking about real connection not this fake “let’s all pretend to be perfect” connection that we see on social media. you gotta find a place you belong, it’s a human need. if you can’t find it in the people you already know then it’s your responsibility to go out and find it elsewhere. .
we need to audit our relationships. fuck all that no new friends BS. get you some new friends, even new family if you must!! cus some people, most actually, aren’t capable of receiving love yet alone giving it.
Hey, friend... as we all get older and become more self aware, we choose to surround ourselves with people who truly matter. We swap out quantity for quality. People will always come and go from our lives, but the ones who are meant to stay will stay. Know that the people who left were meant to leave. Their purpose in your life had been fulfilled and vice versa. Let them go. You now have more room for newer meaningful connections. Life happens in waves. Ride the waves with grace. ♥️
