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.
