So I've finally come up with a New Year's resolution. It's to not sweat the small stuff. To really enjoy each day. To be grateful for what I have and to remember that I'm genuinely happy. And, most importantly, to care less about the toxic people in my life.

For some strange reason, I have this desire to hold on to certain people, ignoring the fact that they don't really get me or appreciate me - and in any moment, they could (and have) hurt me and then don't seem to care about it at all.

It makes me feel bad about myself and then I become this needy type of unhappy person that even I don't like.

These people are toxic. And even though they have their purpose (they really can be fun to be around), I've realized I can't expect much from them. So - let them be toxic. If we happen to cross paths... that's fine. But if we don't, even better.

This is me, taking care of myself. Focusing on the good things I have in life. And this is me... happy.


  1. Excellent! Really happy about this post!

  2. Good for you to have gone in this direction of self care. It is important to be with people who appreciate us for who we are. How wise to know this; there are times I wish I had known this when I was your age. Life would have been easier and happier.
