I read an article on cracked a few months ago about why it's so much better to be an adult. One of the reasons was ''you can choose who you hang out with''. It just made so much sense. I'm not in high school anymore. Someone doesn't support me, doesn't bring more to the table than he takes or just won't change and evolve? F*ck him, I look for someone else to spend my time and invest personally and emotionally with. Life is short. No point on surrounding myself with people who suck and just want to drag me down in their misery.
It's harsh, but it saves so much drama and makes life so much easier and so much more interesting.
