Isn’t it funny
Isn’t it funny how we set qualifications for who the right person to be with should be? When we really know deep down that the right person to be with is always the exception.
I’ve been raised to see the good in people, and in the past, in turn I’ve put my trust in the wrong people. There comes a time when you have to protect yourself and understand whether you can actually help someone or if their underlying issues are much more than you can handle. You can’t suffer your own state of happiness to help others. That will leave you as the damaged one. If someone wants you to feel that level of suffering that they’ve felt, it’s like the poison and resentment is just transferring from them to you. It means they aren’t interested in changing for the better, they are just hellbent on self destruction and taking you down with them. Sometimes people must help themselves before you can help them. I’m a better judge of character now. I’ve learnt a lot about friendship and relationships this past year. I surround myself with positive people that add to the enjoyment of my life, not those who bring me down. I will always use one hand to help myself and one hand to help another because who knows, you may be the only one who does. However, I am undeniably happy and I won’t let anyone shake that, extract that or infect that.
