Sometimes I think you realise what kind of person you are when you have a realisation, that it is time to take a step back. It’s not a weak thing to do, but a wise thing to do. Re-evaluation of relationships, friendships and dreams is all-consuming for me right now. I know where I want to get to, and who I want to be in getting there. I need to stop placing attention and expectation on people who may desire me, but do not value me. When relationships begin to fall apart, there is no point in saving them when you’re the only one watching the destruction. Sometimes there can be beauty in the fall, and in order to see the bigger picture, taking a few steps back from the scene can help.
