"Life is Too Short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you" As Dr.Wayne Dyer always says, one of the first things you have to do to start on the path of the life you want, is to REMOVE yourself from the presence of negative people.
Kurt Vonnegut: Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.
