Growth isn't betrayal.
Sometimes the closest people to you are the least happy for you. They only clap to blend in. They don't wanna appear a hater, but your warm reception has them hot. It was cool on the come up together, but you had the audacity to win. Now you're a reflection of what they're not, not because they're unqualified, but because you chose to grow. Oh ye of little faith. They're a miserable companion who only wanted your company before it became incorporated. Hey buddy, your buddy pass is no longer valid on this journey - please take a moment to locate the nearest exit. 🚶🏽🛩 | cc: @bereolaesque
