Who is someone I need to let go or wish I didn’t know?
The last toxic person in my life exited with a flash, heading west and leaving her past behind her as quickly as she possibly could. Can I say that I wish I never knew her? No, that would be unfair to the lessons that I learned.
I learned that if you have a friend who tells you the deepest, darkest, nastiest secrets of all her “best” friends who live in other locations, she is doing the same to you.
I learned that priding yourself on hating other people behind their backs while you’re sweet to their faces means that you have a rotten peach pit of a heart.
I learned that you can spend over $20,000 without getting any effort or consideration in return and have the abject laziness and lack of ability on the recipient’s end be interpreted as manipulation and a selfish act on my end.
In the end, this was someone I needed to let go. I didn’t realize it early enough, and it resulted in a betrayal at the deepest level I’ve ever experienced, but, it doesn’t mean that I wish I didn’t know her. It happened for a reason, and my life is cleaner, better, and healthier as a result.
Although, there is another person, in my life right now, who I do need to cut out. Her words are permanently echoing in my head, and she’s an extremely bad influence on me. The more I try to avoid thinking about her, the more I can’t stop. I see her pictures everywhere, and her name comes up constantly. I need to quit her. I’m talking, of course, about Ke$ha.
