I have a friend...she's been my friend for quite awhile now....we used to be almost inseparable....but just for a little bit. And then I started seeing her less and less. And it hurt. I kept trying. I would make the effort, over and over again. And I was continually disappointed and hurt by her. And yet, even now, whenever I do see her, I find myself falling into the vicious cycle again. She's so bad for me. It hurts to be her friend. I have so many other amazing friends that value my friendship. And yet, I let myself fall back into the trap of disappointment, anger, and pain.
What is that about human nature? To be drawn to things that are bad for you? That hurt you? The "bad boys" that women date, the friends that use and abuse you, even the unhealthy food or bad habits that people succumb to.
If it's so bad for me, why can't I just let it go?
