I was originally going to post about an amazing Cadillac concept car, lamenting why it is not going to be produced in addition to complaining about America’s race to the bottom and its seemingly perpetual need to seek the lowest common denominator. However, I saw this article https://www.cnbc.com/2018/02/20/10-habits-that-will-dramatically-improve-your-life.html and realized I wanted to write about something else, instead. The first step listed here is to “stay away from people who erode your quality of life.” I would add regardless of how long you have known them or whether or not they’re a relative.
Your life belongs to you and only to you. You may choose to share it with others, but it does not belong to them. People who treat you with contempt or with disrespect have no place in your life regardless of circumstances.
Be good to yourself.
