this was my year in learning how to embrace pain. emotional pain. heartbreak. growing pains. loss of trust and friendship. I bled out for those that were undeserving, but having access to my energy is a privilege not a entitlement. I believe that ‘unconditional love’ is a toxic concept that enables abuse. apathy towards poor behavior is inexcusable. this was my year to demand respect and accountability. to call out abusers and refute false justifications. I have no regrets.
