That’s it. There goes my sanity. It’s gone out the window. But I refuse to lose my integrity and my congeniality.
Social media is always flooding with articles on what twenty-something-year-olds should or shouldn’t be doing and I’ve seen this token of advice several times: “Don’t burn bridges,” or “Mend your broken bridges.” I personally have a much better peace of mind when I do break off relationships with people who hurl so much negativity into my life. And this isn’t something I do after one instance. I choose to do so only after I’ve meditated on the relationship over countless moments. Some people are just better off ruining other people’s lives and not mine. There is no way that I will ever let anyone destroy who I am. If everyone supposedly gets what they deserve, then I don’t deserve that.
I’ve decided to stay somewhere else for a while, at least through to finals week. I honestly can’t be here right now. I don’t care if he thinks he’s won. He’s already lost all of my respect. So instead of succumbing to this hostility, I’m just going to leave. Good luck to everyone else in this house. Mom will be absent for a while.
