Yeah I Said It!

A short opinion piece by my friend DT is below and I almost whole heartedly agree with him. I find that we often find it easier to hold on to old friends even when they don’t do us much good. We find it easier to have relationships with the opposite sex when we date than building relevant friendships with new people. So what say you? Share your thoughts.

Stop choosing your friends/influences based on where you’ve been but rather based where you’re trying to go. That’s the past, you’ve got to move to your future baby!!!!

If you’re fat and want to be skinny, stop hanging out with your fat friends.

If you’re broke and want to be rich, stop hanging out with broke people (not talking about folk that pretend to have money).

If you want a “drama free” life stop watching the drama.

If you want a better relationship stop hanging out with friends that have terrible ones, (man or woman haters) sharing stories back and forth about how you hate so & so but you love them???

So tired of people saying they are so sick & tired of the way their life has been but will continue to inundate themselves with everything their supposedly trying to get away from in the name of “keeping it real?”

Yes, that will mean you have to delete some people from your Facebook and your life. Shoot!!! If I’m not helping you delete me.

Influences must be aligned with your goals and beliefs.

  1. Amen to this. It’s not always the easiest but sometimes you just have to let it go and wooooosah. Life should just never be about compounding headaches

    love the picture, love acts of kindness especially when they come from unlikely places or rather beings.

    That said, I think much of what we desire or aspire to be, comes most importantly from ourselves i.e. our resolve, and not the environment. Granted, the environment still plays a part but I reckon the major factor is our motivation, desire, aptitude, resolve etc.

    Hence, I only partially agree with DT’s perspective enunciated in the comment, although I must say I wholly agree with the statement ‘so tired of people…………… keeping it real.’ I believe the Bible even admonishes people to go to the foolish and learn wisdom, in the book of Proverbs. Simply put, the right environment isn’t a foolproof guarantee that one would be a success, or as Malcolm Gladwell wrote ‘the advantages of disadvantages and the disadvantages of advantages’.

    Writing this comment, I couldn’t just overlook the coincidence of my first paragraph to the crux of my comment – sometimes, in the unlikely places, we find what we look for.

  5. This is not the year to drag around excess luggage. If something/someone is no good for you, drop them. We shouldn’t be running backwards.
