don’t ever have to feel guilty about removing toxic people from your
life. It doesn’t matter whether someone is a relative, romantic
interest, employer, childhood friend, or a new acquaintance — you don’t
have to make room for people who cause you pain or make you feel small.
It’s one thing if a person owns up to their behavior and makes an effort
to change. But if a person disregards your feelings, ignores your
boundaries, and continues to treat you in a harmful way, they need to
go. —Daniell Koepk
