Don't let other people ruin your happiness



Hey guys sorry this post is a few days late! Today I wanted to talk about the people you surround yourself with. This is linked in to my last little thought last Tuesday on friendship. When you're young it can be hard to know who your real friends are, and often this can continue as you get older too. It can be really hard not to let people get you down and sometimes the people we actually hang around can make us feel really sad. As you get older and more independent you realise that life's too short to hang around with these people and to let these people in our lives. Take a good long think about the people you call your friends, are they really your friends? Are they mean or nasty to you, do they not invite you places? Then it's time to either talk with them and tell them they're making you sad or to get out of that situation and find some new friends, which is harder than it sounds I know, but you'll be better off in the long run.

I love that lyric from "follow your arrow" by Kacey Musgraves that says "you're dammed if you do and you're dammed if you don't so you might as well do whatever you want." And I think it's really important to listen too. People will always have their own opinions but that doesn't mean you should listen to them, if you want to do something, do it, don't think about the consequences of it and what people will say, it's not up to them to judge and their opinions don't really matter anyway, you are your own person so follow the path you want to take, that's the way to true happiness.

Everyone is concerned primarily about themselves and people are usually too wrapped up in their own worlds to even care about what you're doing so you should just go for it!
Remember you are your own person, someones opinion of you does not define your worth
Lots of Love
