Detaching yourself from people however important they may be to you is a sign of emotional intelligence. Families, friendship dynamics replay these vents that satiate our need for a familiar emotional fulfillment, being codependent for validation, esteem, ego boost, self deprecation etc. We need to step out and really truthfully measure who and what adds a bit of growth and brings us closer to our true, better self and then make choices.
Were you ever in relationship with someone?
Romantically, no. This basically goes out for any relationship that keeps you stuck or at a complacent pace in life.
