Not because I don’t allow myself to understand them but because I love and understand myself enough to know that when I hurt, I hurt for a reason. I’m no stranger to imperfect relationships. I am also not a stranger to unconditional love. I am aware that there is a distinct difference between a dysfunctional relationship and a failed one. You have to at least care enough to acknowledge the dysfunction…it takes one person to completely bail to let that relationship fail.
I try with all my might to be strong, positive and productive for those who are hurting around me but when I’m alone, the pain is what I know best. I allow myself to feel and release but sometimes writing isn’t even enough. I hold onto things much longer than I let on. I know that my patience and my faith in people needs abrupt improvement and my attitude could use a little help as well but I’ll be damned if I let anyone drag me down. I sure as hell will extend my claws out to anyone who threatens my loved ones with physical or emotional abuse…but I know I need to take precaution.
Not everyone is an enemy.
Not everyone is a friend.
There will always be grey area people who exist and we can either stand in each other’s way or just move along.
Let’s just move along.
