Moving on

I’m changing my personality and outlook for the better. During these past few years, I let a lot of stupid people take advantage of me. All they ever did was suck the life out of me physically, mentally emotionally and financially. But ever since I woke up and cut them loose, my life has improved. My bank account has increased and I’m a lot more confident than I ever was before. I’ve learned to create healthy boundaries out of self respect. Not going to associate with idiots just for the sake of not being alone. Once you cut stupid people completely out of your life, you do not go running back to them. If it takes a while for me to find decent people to hang out with who value me for who I am, then let it be damned.

What a relief eh. No more time to waste, not even on regrets of years gone by and to whom.

Good for you

Screw the idiots who didn’t understand you and don’t even want to try. They’re not worth your time and energy. You’re doing good now.

One hundred percent with this post. I would much rather have my peace and quiet any day then be surrounded by losers that do nothing but drive me to the brink of insanity. Good on you for knowing that and keeping your guard high. More people should take care of themselves instead of letting others control them.

I hear this type of statement from countless people nowadays. But while they’re all proudly stating that they’re cutting people out of their lives for being stupid (or otherwise not living up to expectations), not one of them has ever suggested that they’re the problem. In human relationships it does take two, and if you’re always assuming that it’s the other person who’s at fault, then you’re missing half of the equation. It’s also a fact that people now have these excessively high expectations of other people and zero tolerance for anyone who doesn’t somehow live up to them. So this could explain why we’re always hearing about how many lonely there are in spite of there being so many of us. Personally, I’m practicing tolerance and acceptance of my own and others’ flaws, and before I remove someone from my life I’ll be giving a great deal of thought to what I can do to improve the relationship.

It’s very fascinating how you told it like it is by calling them what they are… Stupid. Stupid is the right word and at least you didn’t use the word “toxic“ which is so overused these days.

No It only takes one loser to mess up a relationship. And one person with a heart of gold who had the courage to finally realize the other person was a lieing, leeching, abusive, controling, manipulative, moron and finally get the balls to get away from all their little mind freak games.
Sometimes it's just the one person who is the stupid idiot.
Doesn't always take two to tango my silly friend.
Interesting now ?

I agree. You said you made healthy choices, got some self-respect and better boundaries, and some people try to make it a 'you' problem. Probably the very same people gaining the most from those non-existent boundaries. It can be a shock for those types of people when they finally hear a no and see you standing up for yourself. If you're constantly in giving mode loop it can be hard to remember compassion and love are things that should flow to ourselves too. You can still have love and compassion for people that have done you wrong, it doesn't mean they get to have a place in your life anymore. All relationships aren't meant to be permanent, it's not healthy to attach to people that aren't aligned. Once they're let go of, it makes room for the people that are aligned where you are in your journey. They could of appreciated and worked on things when they had the (likely) many chances but these types only realize what they have after all their games, when it's too late.
