Tonight I realized that one of the most influential friendships of my life is (was) abusive, manipulative, and straight up unhealthy. I feel so stupid for making excuses for you and pouring so much of my energy into our friendship, when all you wanted was a maid, a mother, an ugly best friend to third wheel around with you.
I have to remember a friend should celebrate with me, not send me passive aggressive texts, reminding me of my insecurities and short comings. I have to stop being too proud to walk away from a dead relationship
