If you need to chase you don’t need them in your life!
I came from a highly toxic family and I appreciate my solitude so much now. I used to fear it (as I was groomed to) that their rejection of me would “leave me all alone in the world” and how scary that would be. The truth is being away from the toxicity allowed me to discover who I was, and the “real love” that was out there from friends, neighbors, coworkers, etc. I may have less people in my circle of trust but I certainly have more love than I ever allowed myself to imagine. ~ Christine Barber
