Andrew Cotto
“In the open sky above the hushed streets, the moon was a porcelain plate on a black table as I walked home. A breeze raised the collar of my jeans jacket as I sliced through the silvery silence, past unlit buildings and quivering trees and cars idle by the curb. The air felt like glass. I crossed empty corners under the mauve light of overhead lamps.”
Andrew Cotto, Outerborough Blues: A Brooklyn Mystery

“Alone in the dark, a great light illuminated my path.”
Lailah Gifty Akita, Pearls of Wisdom: Great mind

“Watch for signs of a toxic friendship and raise your guards:
- Their criticism/comments make you feel small and embarrassed
- They feel bitter on your achievements and try to minimise it in your and others' eyes
- They don't feel/understand your situation and you find yourself explaining and justifying your actions
- They are unhappy, complaining, dissatisfied and discontent with their life
- They are self-centred and require a lot of attention without returning it when you are in need
- They are bully (sometimes subtle though)
- They are not ready to take no as an answer
- They bear no criticism on themselves and are always right (it's always your fault)
It's hard to let go of toxic people. It's easy to find a reason or an excuse for their behaviour. But remember, a real friend needs no explanations, justifications, modifications or adjustments. They accept you the way you are and are always there regardless, without ever judging you. The risk with this awareness is that you may find yourself walking alone with no real friend around you, but this is how I have discovered my one and only 100% real friend - God.”
