I pretty much burned all the bridges I have just because I couldn't take the people I know.

Unless I am given a really good reason, I tend to be very faithful to the friends/relationships I build. Most of the time it's because I love being there for my friends when they need me. The only times I have cut the relationship off was because I literally, physically, could not deal with whatever was happening in the relationship anymore. I've only burned a few bridges in my life, and it's been in a time where the person was very toxic to me. Hurting me, abusing me emotionally, and using me. Those are things no one should ever tolerate, but even I've held out as long as I could because I had faith they would change.

As I spend a lot of time by myself. The people I do befriend tend to be the kind that rely on me as much as I rely on them. Haven't burned any yet, but the ones that have been built will last a lifetime. At worst, the bridges just are left untraveled. Mainly due to loss of communication. Years may pass, but once we get back in touch, it's much the same as before. Much of the problems lie with myself when it comes to connections. Many have tried to find ways to get closer, but I usually never bothered for whatever foolish reasons I had at the time.

I stopped talking with someone who I used to call my best friend. Don't even know why I called her my best friend. She would always be nice to me and then turn around and be mean to my friends. She's also very selfish. VERY selfish.

I never choose to break off relations, but when someone chooses to do it to me, it leaves a huge psychological hole in my psyche. I absolutely hate it and I kinda just break down. But yeah, that's just me.

Facing this right now.

I'm reallllly close friends with this girl. I eventually and inevitably developed feelings for her. I'm so emotionally and physically invested in her, like I give her so much of my time, attention and care. She says that I'm the closest guy to her, yet she still talks to other guys. Idk, I get obsessive sometimes. And it just urks me, I may just be overthinking things but recently, I feel like sometimes she doesn't appreciate or realize that I'm treating her so good.

We always see each other during the weekend and like I said, we're really close. Our friends always ask us if we're dating, but I just say we're close.

Idk. I'm holding on for dear life.

Very easily. Perhaps too easily and might seem heartless to most people.

But keep in mind, I do have an introverted personality.

I just don't like people who constantly brings negative energies/drama into my simple quiet life. And because I have an introverted personality, I don't really like confrontations, and I hate telling people to stop whatever negative things they're doing. I want people to be able to see their own errors rather than me pointing them out to them.


And most people here in Sydney are so self-righteous, the moment you try to reason with them about something, they will say you're wrong and they're right (probably applies to most humans on Earth)... but I just don't like that kind of attitude... when people think they're right all the time? it annoys me.

I don't burn bridges. Either they burn bridges or the bridges burn themselves. I'm terrible at making sure that they're well maintained.

There are plenty of people I've met that I feel I would be better off without.
So I never speak to them until they want something from me, then I continue not speaking to them.

I generally let the bridge decay over time, which I think most people do. It's hard to keep up with everyone you meet and make friends with in your whole life. That being said, I am probably more ready to burn a bridge than most people. My temper has gotten much better over the years, but I really don't tolerate betrayal nor being treated as inferior. If it happens, I'm very much likely to rip into the other person, such as make fun of their dead mom, etc. and enjoy every minute of my revenge before I say my final goodbye.
