“My therapist told me that I am spreading myself too thin these days. She said that I need to cut some people off that don’t deserve my time and energy. I’m in a phase in my life where I really just need to focus on me, and no one else.”


“Yeah. I’ve been doing it and feeling much better. I barely said yes to coffee with you today.”

“Huh. How interesting.”

“Yeah, you should try it.”

“Well, my therapist told me that my ability to cut people off and self-isolate is not a skill I should be proud of—it’s a trauma response rooted in never having anyone to depend on. . .”



“. . . I wonder who’s therapist is right?”

. . .

“Your attitude feels toxic. I don’t appreciate you having a different opinion than mine. I have to go and isolate now, recover from this. This has been too draining for me.”

“Okay. Go scroll through your phone in the dark for hours and see if you feel better.”

“Wow, alright, see ya.”
