Unfortunately, people will disappoint us from time to time. That’s normal. But when one person becomes a continual source of misery, they don’t deserve your time. Some people seem to thrive on bringing bad tidings, creating drama and making others feel lousy. My family has been dealing with one such person for far too long.
So the next time you’re confronted with someone like this, I have a suggestion. Smile and walk away. They do not deserve to waste any of your time. Was I clear on that? They do not deserve to waste your time – you can not get that time back!
Do something that makes you happy. Focus on the people you love and your true friends. Not on the ones who drain your energy. Do big things. Do small things. Do things to distract you from the unpleasant and unnecessary stuff. Go away for the weekend. Have coffee with a friend. Cook a family dinner. Plant flowers. Try something new. Just don’t waste time on people who don’t deserve it.
Live well. Live happy. That truly is the best revenge.
