The cost of shattered illusions

There has been a hidden cost of shattered illusions of friendship in this season of my life. Sometimes I've had to dissociate with people I thought were friends but they attacked me vengefully because of my strident critique of religion, patriarchal dominance and white supremacy. I've also had some who've cut me off too which has been emotionally tiring to navigate. But with the shattering of social illusions, the universe has graced me with the emergence of authentic spiritual connection, I'm learning the difference between Spiritkin and social situationships and it's such a beautiful healing balm in the midst of the anguishing loss of familiar comforts.
