‘If being with yourself is no better option than being with someone who’s wrong for you, you’ll never be able to find someone who is right, because you don’t know who you are’.

You’ve captured it so well, Kinza. I have an idea of how you feel: like watching someone commit the same mistake you did and not listening to your warnings. It must be hard, especially when it’s a friend you care about.

I hope she ‘opens her eyes. Some people need time to see these things. Sometimes, the advice from friends and family clicks under certain circumstances and they just start ‘getting it’.

I hope you don’t give up on her. She has a good friend in you.
