Take Control Of Your Future, Even If It Means Kicking Some People Out Of Your Life

Sometimes in order to become the best you possible, you have to be picky about who you allow close to you.


You know those friends you have who aren’t really your friends but they are at the same time? They constantly annoy the stew out of you but you don’t want to de friend them because you’re in the same friend group or whatever it may be. We all have them. They drag you down, maybe without even realizing it. Well I’m here to tell you it’s time for you to decide whether they’re in or out.

With the new year quickly approaching, it’s time to decide if we are really here for them to be in our lives.

Guess what? It’s okay to kick them out of your life. It’s okay to say you’re done with how they’ve been treating you. It’s okay to choose your happiness! In this new year, do whatever brings you joy. This year is all about you and your successes and you can’t have someone weighing you down all the time. What’s not okay is you constantly not wanting to do something because one person is going.It’s not okay to take that happiness away from yourself just because you don’t want to be around someone.

It’s time to not let anyone or anything else be a factor in your life, it’s up to you and only you to control your decisions. You cannot let someone else control your happiness, you and you alone should be the only thing that matters. If not being friends with someone will make you happy, do it. Don’t worry about what others will think! The only persons opinion who matters is yours.

You are a fabulous human being and you’re going to do so many amazing things in your life. That being said, you can’t just let anyone into your life. Sometimes in order to become the best you possible, you have to be picky about who you allow close to you.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
