The truth is you are the ONLY one you can ever truly rely on. Even people you always thought had your back will disappoint you. Or, they’ll die. “Relying on someone” puts expectations on that person that they never signed up for. It’s a request that they make you the center of their life, even if only for some given time frame. It’s not fair to anyone to put them in that situation. Open your arms to the people that love you and want to be in your life. Let the others go with grace and love. Holding any sort of resentment only hurts you.
