To encourage you to keep going.
To remind you to be strong.

Published on February 2, 2015 in Picture Quotes, Quote of the Day

Free yourself from negative people. Spend time with nice people who are smart, driven and like-minded. Relationships should help you, not hurt you. Surround yourself with people who reflect the person you want to be. Choose friends who you are proud to know, people you admire, who love and respect you – people who make your day a little brighter simply by being in it. Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you. When you free yourself from negative people, you free yourself to be you – and being you is the only way to truly live. ~Unknown

    Some people take this information literally. To have a friend you must be a friend. Not everyone is blessed with a charmed life. Some people require support, comfort and love because they are suffering. This quote makes you feel like you should avoid people like this. I dont believe we should live our life only thinking of our own happiness or comfort.
    How about a more loving quote about how to treat your neighbour.
    Perhaps you might find my comment too negative for your website.

      Dear Brenda, I am so sorry for your loss. As a mother, I cannot imagine how you must be feeling. I hope somehow, someday, you will find peace in your heart. Thank you letting us into your heart.

      Brenda, I feel sorry too. There’s always so many peaceful things surround you. Just feel and you will find it and be happy.

    For friends, most definitely support, comfort, and love are required. That’s part of the foundation of any relationship. I take this more for people who have been all these things and more. Yet, it becomes a one sided relationship. To have a good friendship, you should nurture it to keep it growing. Or else it just dries up.
