Letting go is never easy. But be wise. Stay away from anything and anyone who doesnt make you happy. As much as you are desperate for a companion. Just let go. Better things will come along the way. Patience and faith are vital.
A friend should protect you, empower and support you. Not by putting you down in front of others and consistently competing with you.
Surround yourself with people who motivates you. People who laugh with you and not at you. People who believes you are a gem to their life.
Not someone who come and go as they wish. Who treats you like an option or fall back plans. Always know your worth and limits.
