toxic

I have been doing my best these last few months to nurture healthy relationships.

And to avoid those that are toxic.

Unfortunately, this cannot always be avoided.

The price I pay for this feels higher than it once did.

I am exhausted today.

And sad.

I know exactly what you mean. I always try to cut unsupportive people out of my life, but sometimes they sneak in. And man, is it draining when they do.

By the way, who was it who was visiting? Just for future reference.

Sometimes well-meaning people are super draining too. In fact, these days, I find almost everyone draining. Damn, I'm fun.

But yes, you've definitely earned the right to be selfish about who you spend time with. When you're feeling good, you should be sharing that time with people who don't drain it right out of you.
