The part about your friend you wondered why you had chosen resonated with me. I wish that I, as an adult in my 30s, had a close circle of long-time friends, but my 20s were full of abusive relationships that I kept falling into due to my Woundology. During those years, I picked a lot of toxic friends who seemed great at the time. All those friendships faded or exploded (or imploded). Now that I’ve reached a healing stage, I’m trying to make genuine friendships.
