If you’re following this blog, you know I’m participating in the ‘30 Days of Truth‘ project I’ve seen on other blogs. It’s helping me commit to posting every single day, since I’m also taking part in The Daily Post project.
Day 10 → Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn’t know.
Luckily, I’m at a place in my life currently where I don’t have any dead weight in the friendship category. I have a smaller circle of intimates here in my early 30s than I did around 18 or 21, etc. And that suits me just fine. I have also cut out unnecessary drama, as many my age have. So I don’t have anyone making me miserable.
That said, there is always room to grow; to move forward. Living in the past is a waste of time. We would all do well to keep the past fresh in memory, and learn from the mistakes contained therein. However, if we are spinning our wheels in yesterday, we cannot see today or hope to see tomorrow.
I must continue to excise negativity from my view, and my life. This could include acquaintances, social networking “friends,” and so forth. I can be negative with the best of them. However, it’s usually bitching about something in my life I’m unsettled with, as opposed to one of my biggest pet peeves: people who constantly bemoan their lot in life, but refuse to actively do anything to change it. Those who fall into this category will not find any sympathy from me.
