Posted by cheekyfaerie I don't understand the emphasis people put on romantic relationships. Every interaction we have is a relationship of some kind or another. Why not focus on being a better friend or family member or prioritizing a healthy relationship with one's self instead?
When we start getting better at those relationships, we start attracting people we don't consider as settling.
Wow this really hit home. I got out of a toxic friendship almost 2 years ago and things have been falling into place on every level in my life. I never considered the two being connected.
Perhaps the one was the catalyst for the other... If you believe you deserve more, you hold out for better for yourself. Or something like that.
