The issue isn't what's pure, ok, good, healthy, etc, but what isn't going to leave you a shell of a human if taken away suddenly.
I definitely feel some kind of way about this.
I think it's the core of what got me into therapy in the first place - trying to figure out what I was when I walked away the things that I thought made me, me, because I didn't want to be that me anymore.
But I didn't know what/how else to be so I was holding onto that old identity even when I knew I wanted something else.
