(late night conversations always seem to have some sort of revelation involved)
you know that friend. that friend that always has shit to say about all your other friends. and they make you feel special because- hey, they must think you’re better than these other people that he/she’s talking about, right? that’s why they’re saying all this stuff to you, right? wrong.
it’s one of those truths that people don’t want to admit. we try to come up with reasons as to why that person exempts us from all their trash talking. but there really isn’t one. trash talkers are trash talkers. it’s guaranteed that they’re talking shit about you behind your back.
and of course- they’ll never say anything directly to that person. that’s what makes them trash talkers. they’re saying things in a mean hurtful way with no good intentions behind it. (for the record there is a difference between people that are honest and people that talk shit. honest people typically say things in the hope that that person will realize those issues and work on it to better themselves)
anyways- the point is. ii realized that ii had someone like that in my life and it was way past time to cut them loose. no more making excuses and defending them. they’re poisonous. why keep someone around when they’re just digging around for more crap to report to other people?
i’m better off without you-
but you can’t say the same.
