During the lowest part of my quarter-life crisis, around November 2016, I had an epiphany that I needed to start burning bridges. Which bridges? you might ask. Well, the bridges between me & several people.
2016 taught me that I’m responsible with my own happiness. Nobody else has the duty to make me happy; it’s only me. So I made a list of things that made me unhappy & surprisingly, certain names appeared on my list.
Then I realised that it was finally time to burn bridges. And I guess that’s perfectly okay. It’s okay to severe the tie with the people who no longer contribute to your growth. If those people can think that they’re allowed to bring you down, well you’re allowed to free yourself from them. It may not be easy, but it’s necessary.
2017 will be the year of meaningful & positive relationships.
