if they can't deal with the truth - i feel like i am better off without them. what is the point if all they want to do is relate on a mask-to-mask level? don't waste time and energy on them if it is not an authentic friendship. we have enough professional and social obligations that we have to keep up just to function in the world. to expend personal resources on a facade or sham of a relationship voluntarily is useless.
As my life goes on I believe somehow something's changed
Something deep inside...
I've been searchin so long to find an answer
Now I know my life has meaning
Now I see myself as I am, feeling very free...
When my tears have come to an end I will understand
What I left behind: a part of me. Chicago
