It’s weird to know that new people in your life make you unconditionally happy. To have people that understand you as well as being able to handle all of the different parts of you.
There is some regret/guilt that comes along with growing closer to new people, but there is also this beautiful sensation of freedom. It’s not like you don’t care for the other people but more so like you don’t have to only care about them. You have the capacity to be with other people and actually enjoy yourself.
It’s a rewarding feeling and I’m glad I finally have it now.
