Sometimes I wonder if I'm too old to have a best friend again. I feel like I've missed something special by not letting people in when I was in high school and college, and I fear that I will be lonely and friendless forever as the result.
Ooo damn! TRUTH always comes out when you least expect it. Sometimes you hear about it, but since you never personally saw it.... then you do, and it hurts. Cut the toxic people out, even if they are family.
