"Ain't no body got time for users, abusers and downright ugly people"
I don't know about you, but I can't stand negativity.
Okay, so I'm not perfect and sometimes... a few times, I get so bombarded by the outside forgetting what's really "important" or what "matters" and for a split second... more like a few minutes, I'm a total negative Nancy... and I should know better at this point.
Sometimes we have to evaluate those around us and see whether or not our friends, or connections are the cause of our sudden change of mood. I'm not saying blame your mood on your friends, no. What I'm saying is take a step back and see how they act, how they talk and interact with those around them. Are they overall a positive or a negative person.
Hanging around with the wrong people can totally and completely change how you look at things and how you react. If you're generally a positive person, being around a few that are negative or who look down on people can change your point of view. Not saying you're going to become them, but you have a better chance of accepting their behavior.
If you know it's not right what they say, stand up for yourself and those they're putting down. You aren't 5, respect is earned, not given. People respect those who speak out amongst the crowd, not to those who are submissive, just going with the flow to not upset anyone.
I know I've had my fair share of letting go of negative/bad influencers in my life... often more than not, we have to "burn some bridges to create some distance" (yes, that is a line from a Gnash song).
I mean its true, just think about it. Do you want to surround yourself with people who bring others down for their personal enjoyment or pleasure? No!
People come into our lives to show us things, if they aren't meant to stick around, they will slowly go on their own.
It's the universal law.
What's not meant to be yours simply won't be. Don't force anything when it comes to friendships or relationship, it will back fire and yes, bite you in the ass.
What's meant to happen will happen. The people who are meant to be in your lives will stick around through thick and thin. Not just escape when they see a chance to, or a slight opening of a window to jump out.
Don't be afraid to let go when the Universe is telling you to. Free yourself for the burden and just simply release them, letting them go on their way, peacefully.
Letting go of people suck, but its necessary for you to grow. Take what you've learned from them and move forward. Ain't no body got time for users, abusers and downright ugly people.
