“Only hang around people that are positive and make you feel good. Anybody who doesn’t make you feel good, kick them to the curb. And the earlier you start in your life, the better. The minute anybody makes you feel weird and non-included, or not supported- you know- either beat it or tell them to beat it.”
People are put into our lives for a reason or a season, for a blessing or a lesson. You’re in control of the people you let stay in your life. Choose wisely. Remember that people will hurt you, love you, inspire you, and help you. People will lift you up and push you down. Be a person that you’d want in your own life. The only way to get better is to surround yourself with better people. Better people better people.
Change is inevitable. Growth isn’t. “All change is not growth, as all movement is not forward.” The greatest form of growth is progress. “Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” Embrace the people who challenge you. If you keep pushing those people away, you’ll never grow… those people are in your life to teach you. Learn from them.
Be too busy being a good person to dislike anyone. Be so busy loving that you have no time to spend hating. “If you judge people, you have no time to love them.” People are bound to disappoint you- you’ve got no control over that. But you are in control of how you react to and handle that disappointment. Learn. Grow.
