"Because people ask why we’re not friends anymore."
There are ALWAYS going to be poisonous people in your life. Sometimes they’re hiding in plain sight.
*points* This? This is part of why I dislike that Sullivan piece on friendship. BECAUSE THIS IS ALSO REAL. This is stuff that happen with “friends”. Pretending otherwise isn’t just no-true-Scotsmanning, it means that shit like #10 continues: that kids don’t know to look out for toxicity and abuse in their friendships as well as their romances. (I feel bad for my mother and all the terrible crap she watched “friends” put me thru because I believed in the sacred eternity of Friendship.)
