You can’t be everyone’s friend.

My whole life I’ve been the student referred to as “such a sweet girl.” I hate conflict, and so have showed kindness as much as possible. Don’t make enemies, avoid conflict, cruise along with life… Or so I thought.
I’m slowly learning that nobody can be a compatible friend to every other human being on the planet. It just isn’t possible.
For the first time in my life I’ve taken a serious look at who I trust and who causes me more stress than anything positive.
I’ve tried not to hurt anybody’s feelings, but I have told a couple of people that I just find myself sensitive at the moment and perhaps need some distance.
As it is a new feeling and experience for me, I’m not yet sure how I feel, but I know one thing for sure: I never thought I could have the courage to put myself first.
