IS YOUR LIFE

                             
    There is one life for each of us, our own.

When we were young life was easier right? It seems that way sometimes. But the truth is life is still easy  and it will always be. The only difference is we are older and the older we get, the harder we make things for ourselves.

When you are young you see the world through simple, hopeful eyes.
We knew what we wanted, we liked people who smiled and avoided those with frown faces. We ate when hungry and slept when we were tired. 
But as we grew older our minds were gradually filled with negative influences from the people we meet, the news etc. we were betrayed by friends and loved ones, we were rejected and lied to. 
We sometimes have to drink alcohol to numb our wounds and fill the voids created in our hearts, we started holding grudges, deceiving ourselves and others to get ahead. And when it didn't work out, we lived above our means, used lies to cover up lies.

Please remember your own goals. Live and do what makes you happy, don't let toxic people get the best of you, don't feel guilty about removing toxic people from your life. It does not matter whether the person is a relative, a colleague or a childhood friend or a new friend.  There are people who are always using the relationship you have with them to intimidate and manipulate you who are much aware of what they are doing to you.
 if you are suffering because of their attitude  and they don't seem to care one bit, then ask yourself, do I need this person in my life? No you don't!
When you delete toxic and negative minded people from your life, it becomes a lot easier to breathe, and you create more room for happiness.
 leave this people behind and move on. Seriously, be strong and know when enough is enough!

Speak up and stand for yourself, some people will do anything for their own personal gain at the expense of others, borrow money and won't pay back, abuse your resources, take your kindness for weakness, use you and belittle you etc. do not accept this behavior.

Don't make room for people who cause you pain or make you feel small, walk away from drama and gossip, incredible things happen when you distance yourself from negativity and those who create it.

Don't compete with everyone else or you will become bitter, but rather compete with a previous version of yourself and you will become better, those you are competing with and comparing your life maybe living a life full of lies, so please don't envy the the photos your friends post on social medias and stop comparing your life with them, for all you know, you might be far ahead of them. So be content for someone is praying for the life you have now.
The world is yours! Live your life!!
