I want to talk about toxic relationships. It could be your mate, your parent, your sibling, your boss, or your best friend. I’ve had a couple of these relationships and what does that mean?
Being a teenager I wanted so badly to fit in, which is probably what most teens feel, that I didn’t recognize that it could end up being painful. That is life and a learning situation, I just didn’t realize it until it was too late.
As an adult, wanting something I didn’t think I would ever get, respect for my efforts, I developed another toxic relationship with a coworker. It wasn’t until years later, being more comfortable in myself, that I understood it, and moved on. I was being used.
I hope that at my age I have settled into knowing who and what is important to me.
