Where do you draw the line with someone?
How do you control your feelings toward someone when you’re so heated or so upset?
How do you find the reasoning to let go of all the wrong for some good?
How do you show the person what everyone else has shown them?
So everyone’s abandoned you?
Called you selfish?
Couldn’t be your friend?
So you’ve lost everyone except me?
… And you still haven’t done anything wrong?
You’re still in the clear?
No. That’s not how it goes.
I’m seeing things so clearly now.
I’m understanding certain things that I always knew but refused to take in.
If you’ve heard the same thing from many people, maybe it’s time to take what they say into consideration. Maybe burst outside your own self absorbed bubble and think about everything.
How do I draw the line?
I’m a good friend and a good person.
I don’t believe in grudges or tearing someone down because they hurt you.
I don’t believe in following just what everyone else thinks of something.
I just want to be treated the way i treat people. I’m true, loyal, honest, I genuinely care, and I put people before myself. Why can’t those who “love me” do the same?
I guess I draw my line by understanding that we can’t all be the same. Some of us are selfless while others are selfish. Some of us aren’t naive and some of us know when we do wrong and can own up to it.
We can’t change people.
But we shouldn’t accept them if who they are is hurting you.
If there is no genuine effort to realize the problem and actions to take to fix it, why waste your time?
I draw my line where I don’t feel bad for people. I draw my line where I forgive and move on but stay away from toxicity.
I draw the line so my feelings become more important than trying to keep the peace with everyone. I’ll be kind and civil to everyone. But I won’t force any type of love, friendship, relationship, or anything of the sort.
I draw the line between right and wrong.
