Some bridges NEED to be burned. That is what people fail to explain when you are younger — always erring on the polite side. Oh please. I recently culled two especially toxic people from my life — and while it was emotionally hard — it was the best decision I could have made. Heading into my 40s, I don’t need the same drama, gaslighting, and garbage of my 20s and 30s. Why should I have to keep up with unhealthy relationships? They don’t exactly improve with age — often times worsening with time.
