Day 10: Someone you need to let go or wish you didn’t know

First off, don't forget to enter in my giveaway if you haven't already! :)

I'm not going to go into too many specifics on this but there is a relationship that I need to let go.  I mean I have let go, but actually what I need to do is be okay with the fact it failed.  But failed is such a negative word.  Be okay with the fact that we aren't friends anymore.  For awhile, we were close.  However, I did not have a lot of self esteem and I felt that my role was to be a yes man.  Eventually I was being suffocated, but I didn't know how express myself or to stop being a yes man.  I wanted to be my own person.  Relationships are a two-way street and I wish I could have found a way to explain how I was feeling instead of slowly withdrawing.  I knew that for myself, I had to stop being a yes man.  But I didn't know how to put that in words.  I would like to be able to look back at this for the good things.  In a lot of ways this relationship helped set me free and showed me I could stand up for myself.

It is always strange when a friendship has to come to an end. I seem to be a sucker for toxic friendships. Happily I realized that I am, and why I am, so I finally feel like I don't have any negative relationships right now. Yay!

But boy, that process of ending friendships is always odd and uncomfortable.
