This one life that you have is a gift. Do not let it be tarnished by the negativity and crap that try to work their way into your life. Cut them loose. You don’t need them. What you need is leading your life according to how you want it to be. Unless you are fine with people directing your life, having a say in all of your business, then let that be your choice. Not because you were compelled to. Not because you did not have a choice. Some people like being told what to do and some people don’t. What matters is that your actions and decisions are being made by yourself. If not, cut the crap out of your life. You can do it. You have a choice. Decide.
