The power of possitive thinking has taken hold of me today. That has much to do with my wonderful 'date' last night with a close friend. We both came to the connclussion over vodka and Jack Daniels that, by waiting around possitive things are not going to just fall into place. Sometime removing the things that are depressing, or the people who hold you down is the first important step in making you feel positive. Everybody has those people in there life who always make you feel bad about yourself. Some come in the forms of romantic partners, some in the forms of friends, and some come in the form of work collegues.
While it isn't possible to be able to remove all of the people who bring you down, sometimes you have to look at how things can be improved, limit the time you spend with that person for example. Again some people you are best cutting out of your life completely. Those people who say they are your friends but continue to make you feel either like a child or make you feel that you are in some way a lesser citizen to them. These are the people who you dont need around. I can guantee the outcome will only be good. Sure you might loose a large number of friends but is it really worth feeling down and depressed by so-called friends. No its not. You are never going to be able to change these people, so the best thing for you to do is be the better person and not put up with that anymore.
In your 20's you should be living your life to the fullest and while our parents are from a different generation, and dont understand how things work as a 20 something in 2009, we must look out for ourselfs and be the people we want to be and not the people our 'friends' 'lovers' 'collegues' think we should be.
Everybody deserves to be happy and nobody should pretend to be someone else. Its what makes us unique.
