Sometimes doing what’s right for myself seems to hurt those around me, because they don’t understand my choices. Their path is not my own and I don’t expect them to fully understand. Unfortunately, there are times that I cannot find a way to explain my choices without hurting their feelings. It’s not about them, though, and I have to trust that if they truly love me and care for me, they will trust that my decisions are about me…not them. I suppose this is the sort of line in the sand that some will never understand. I hate losing friends, but at the end of the day this is my life and I must do right by me. I’ve spent the majority of my life people pleasing and it has led me to some pretty dark places. There’s a sense of freedom that comes with shedding that people pleasing skin and really being true to myself for the first time in many years. I’m sorry that I hurt people along the way, that was never my intention. I can only hope to be more careful and mindful as I move forward.
