Lately, I've disconnected myself because people have a hard time understanding boundaries. I don't blame them though. Everyone has the friend they gravitate to when they need advice, have a story to tell, etc. It's just exhausting pouring in everyone's cup without filling your own first. I had to learn to do that.
I'm the friend who finds time for my friends when I'm in a relationship.
I'm the friend who can help with homework.
I'm the friend who always has a pep talk prepared when you need it.
I'm the friend who's down to go out at the last minute.
I'm the life of the party.
I'm a scholar.
I'm a full-time professional.
I'm a side-hustler.
I'm a creator.
I'm a healer.
If you're one of those people who can do it all, know when to rest. Know when to turn your phone on 'Do Not Disturb.'
Go get your nails done.
Go see a movie alone.
Go to Target just to walk up and down the aisles.
Embrace the comfort of silence and solitude.
Me? I have enough for everybody. And it gets bitter when I don't embrace the sweet.
Thanks for reading! See you in two weeks.
