If your own life is falling apart, and your mental health is depleting as a result, step back.
If you’re worried you’re going to lose them, as contradictory as it sounds, step back and appreciate the space.
A final reminder.
Any relationship, friendship or bond requires work, effort and an insane amount of love. It is one of the most stressful elements to life, but also one of the most incredible. If you are meant to be in each others lives, which no doubt you are, then it’s imperative to be honest and to be aware. Apologise, confess your worries, be open, and steer away from petty hate at every point.
