I want you to be happy.
I want you to live life without regrets.
I want you to love like you’ve never loved before.
I want you to be free spirited.
I can’t give you that,
Then I want you to let me go.


It’s funny how toxic our relationship became. Well, not funny ha-ha, funny in a sad, peculiar, upsetting way.

Because it makes me feel so incredibly stupid now that I didn’t see how manipulative and selfish you had become. I always saw the good in everything you did, and no matter how much it hurt, I convinced myself it was a problem with me and not you.

I guess I should have left a long time ago.. And now that I have, I can’t believe how much of life I’ve been missing out on.

Not all toxic people are cruel and uncaring. Some of them love us dearly. Many of them have good intentions. Most are toxic to our being simply because their needs and way of existing in the world force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness. They aren’t inherently bad people, but they aren’t the right people for us. And as hard as it is, we have to let them go. Life is hard enough without being around people who bring you down, and as much as you care, you can’t destroy yourself for the sake of someone else. You have to make your wellbeing a priority. Whether that means breaking up with someone you care about, loving a family member from a distance, letting go of a friend, or removing yourself from a situation that feels painful — you have every right to leave and create a safer space for yourself.
