I'm not saying cutting people off is a healthy way of dealing with situations, but it can help in some cases. It's something that works for me, most of the time. I didn't cut people off until I was 19 I think. I had found out what the real definition of friendship was and what genuinely good people were like. I finally found a place where I belonged and a bunch of people I adored and that adored me just as much. I wondered what I had been doing all those years, seeking acceptance from the ignorant people I was surrounded with. I realised they had never been worth my time in the first place, so I started deleting every single person that had hurt me, from my life, one by one.
People that had bullied me, disappointed me terribly, had never taken me seriously, people who enjoyed shift blaming and refused to take responsibility for disrespectful behaviour and overstepped boundaries time and time again. People who, in general, just don't have good intentions and feed on drama like it's candy. Cutting people off and never talking or meeting with them again, for me, is about letting go and deleting unnecessary negativity from my life. Preventing it from coming back and letting go of the pain that comes with having those people around. It's not about ignoring a situation and not wanting to deal with it, it's about being selfish for once and think about what makes you a great person and what and who brings out the best in you. I'm a person that holds grudges, and that for a very long time. Forgiveness is something that is far out of reach for me at this point in my life and I've come to the conclusion that that's okay. Forgiving people is important, but doing it at your own pace is better, much better.
Q: Do you tend to cut people off? How do you delete negativity from your life? Are you a person that holds grudges?
