When someone tells you they want nothing to do with an ex partner, friend, parent or sibling- they probably have a fucking solid reason to do that and it is entirely within their rights to say goodbye to folk who do them harm. Most likely you have no idea of the intricacies of their relationship and the toxic elements may be hidden to you.
Don’t guilt trip them for it by saying things like-
‘Oh they looked really sad’
‘They say they really miss you’
‘You only have one’
‘You’ll be sad when they’re gone’
We owe it to ourselves to live and love the best we can, sometimes that means saying goodbye to people, places and dreams. Sometimes it also involves the heavy task of breaking free of societies expectations of us.
