You are the focal point of your own universe. This means no one else has your vantage point/optical view of the world.
You are at the center of your universe. Your choices get to decide what is in the main cost of the meal you cook up. Just because your thoughts and emotions are at the center of your universe, doesn’t mean other peoples’ thoughts and emotions are at the center of your universe. Their thoughts and emotions are at the center of their universe.
The people you love can be in your life on varying degrees of involvement. Toxicity and dysfunction do not have to be the center of your world. Avoiding interaction with negativity is not an admission of dislike for a loved one, it is a declaration of self love. You can love someone and stay the hell away from them at the same time. Boundaries are necessary.
