Its okay to want to keep certain aspects of your relationship private.

Sometimes the people closest to you feel obligated to know every single detail of your life and while its great to have a support system, be mindful that some people can give advice/opinions from a biased nature. You have the right to privacy and that should be respected.

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.

I want to say that I have no particular agenda for my boys’ future, that whatever they do, I will love them and support them and be happy for them. I sure as shootin’ don’t want to be in the business of wanting things for my kids. That’s a perilous line of work, right there.

Still, I suppose there is one thing I do want: That whatever they choose for themselves, be it cabin or castle, trapping or trading, comes from themselves. That they are able to conduct themselves in alignment with their sense of what is right and wrong, what is almost unfathomably beautiful and what is unspeakably and sometimes unforgivingly tragic.

It’s not an easy thing to find, that alignment, and I suspect it’s not going to get any easier. Seems to me as if the world’s moving in a direction that makes such discovery increasingly difficult. But if there’s one thing I hope, it’s that my boys think it’s at least worth looking for.

i feel like only people who have style can appreciate this for all it is

God damnit if I don’t find this in a relationship I’ll be alone forever.
