We aren’t responsible for anybody else’s happiness. Ultimately, we can only guarantee our own.
Some of the closest people in our lives are toxic — parents, friends, work colleagues, boyfriend, girlfriend, etc. They bring us no joy. They make our lives miserable.
The less time we spend with them, the better off we’re going to be.
How do we even expect to live up to our full potential if we are surrounded by people who weigh us down?
Let them go, and you will grow.
