when you refuse to look at your bank account balances and pretend like everything is ok
I think it’s a healthy way to live. Yoy shouldn’t worry about money. This is a good way to do it, so long as you pay your bills and get along, don’t worry. Money doesn’t deserve all of your attention.
Here’s a serious advice. Even the nicest people have their limits. Don’t try to reach that point because the nicest people are also the scariest assholes when they’ve had enough.
Demons run when a good man goes to war.
There are three things all wise men fear: the sea in storm, a night with no moon, and the anger of a gentle man

The anger of a gentle man. I hadn’t really thought about it before, but holy fuck…. legit terrifying.
Not all toxic people are cruel and uncaring. Some of them love us dearly. Many of them have good intentions. Most are toxic to our being simply because their needs and way of existing in the world force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness. They aren’t inherently bad people, but they aren’t the right people for us. And as hard as it is, we have to let them go. Life is hard enough without being around people who bring you down, and as much as you care, you can’t destroy yourself for the sake of someone else. You have to make your wellbeing a priority. Whether that means breaking up with someone you care about, loving a family member from a distance, letting go of a friend, or removing yourself from a situation that feels painful — you have every right to leave and create a safer space for yourself.

This is how it is with my sister and my dad. I don’t understand, but I think she chooses the estrangement to keep her mind healthier. We are different and I can handle him. He is not toxic to my being, but I think he is to her and I’m working on that being okay with me, even if it hurts him. Life is too complicated sometimes. Live, love, and be good to yourself.
