Something I was very fortunate to learn at an early age, during the most trying times of my life,
Surround yourself by those you love. who make you happy. who understand you. who accept you. who make you a better person. who are loving. who inspire you. who have your best interest at heart. who you can trust. who you can learn from. who don't judge. who you know are real.
All others aren't worthy of being a part of your life.
Life is too short to waste time on those who bring you down.
