Dear Diary

Today I want to write about my version of cutting out the negative people from your life. Its towards the end of 2018, and everywhere on social media there is encouragement to start the year clean and fresh. The top action on the list is for many to cut negativity and/or negative people from life.
Early this year, this is exactly what I did i.e. cut all people from my life because from one aspect to another they all appeared to be negative people or people who spread negativity. It wasn’t until towards the end of the year I realized, which not many realize and end up lonely like me, the key is not to cut the negative people out of your life but to know who you are. When faced with negative people just take a deep breath and keep in your mind that these are their thoughts and ideas and not yours.
Take an example of arguing with anyone when its day and they claim it to be night. What do you do? You don’t argue because you know its pointless and you leave them with their opinion because you know the truth. Therefore it is very essential to know where to invest your energies and where to back off, but that’s a topic for another day.
