You have got only one life to live and if you want to make the best out of it, start focusing on what really matters the most: you. In your entire lifespan, you are going to interact with thousands of people. Some might end up becoming your friends or even family. Nevertheless, even when you are surrounded by your loved ones, you should focus on how you can make yourself better. It might sound a little selfish, but you can’t really excel by having a judgmental or envious lot by your side. If you really want to move ahead in your life, then let these people go.
- Those who are over-pessimistic
There is this thing about pessimism – it’s like a spiral. The more negative you feel, the harder it would get for you to come out of it. Avoid those who always have something negative to say about you.
- Those who are judgmental
While it is always a good thing to have constructive criticism, too often, people let their feelings cloud their judgment. Having a judgmental friend will make you belittle and doubt yourself.
- Those who are envious
The world is already full of hypocrites. You deserve those who would celebrate your victory and not become envious of your growth.
- Those who are liars
No liars = no drama. It is really as simple as that! Have someone by your side who can be honest and truthful to you. After all, honesty is the foundation of trust and friendship.
- Those who like to gossip
Do you really have time to gossip? Like, seriously?
- Those who are arrogant
While it is okay to lose our temper at times, having an arrogant individual by your side will definitely consume your energy for no reason.
- Those who can’t maintain boundaries
Every relationship has a few lines that should never be crossed. Be with those who would respect your individuality and give space for you to outgrow yourself.
- Those who are control freaks
They will always impose their opinion on you and will never let you stand out as an individual. Sometimes, we all need to let go of ourselves and find that perfect groove.
- Those who play the blame-game
Not only will it consume your time, but it would gradually make you believe that you can avoid any unwanted situation by blaming others. Needless to say, it might end disastrously.
- Those who don’t have a vision Source
Because you can’t just run blind your whole life. If you don’t know where you are going, you are not going anywhere at all.
- Those who don’t value your worth Source
You are irreplaceable. And those who can’t see that, doesn’t really deserve to stay in your life. Be proud of the flawed person that you are.
- Those with whom you just can’t vibe
Sometimes, you just don’t vibe with people. It is really as simple as that. Instead of investing your time and energy to make it work, you should focus on other significant things (and people) in your life.
Gone are the days when people used to say “the more the merrier”. Instead of having a huge circle, focus on a small group. Have the kind of people who inspire you to be better. Every single day.
