I don't need anybody in my life who doesn't want to be there

I don't need Georgina
I might or might not be quoting season 1 of Gossip Girl... I honestly don't care because this message is powerful enough to endure the possible backlash. Recent events drove me towards choosing "cleanse" as May's theme; life works in mysterious ways and, somehow, has a way of putting two and two together, you know? People come and go, you let them in, sometimes they stay because they deserve to, sometimes they do because they force it. I've been dealing with the latter.

You're not meant to please everybody and 99% of the time, you should put yourself first, be your priority. Life has taught me that you can't save anybody and it's not your job to solve other people's lives. I've been realising, more so lately, that I have many people in my life that don't have my back, that constantly use and abuse me... I've been more outspoken about it in the past few weeks and I don't think they've been liking it too much; I can tell that they're pushing me away because I don't tell them what they want to hear and, you know what? That's fine.

I don't need anybody in my life who doesn't want to be there. I'm tired of spending energy and thoughts on unworthy folks: If you don't like me, don't like the way I handle things, then you're welcome to leave. I'm done with haters, with people hurting me when I'm only trying to be nice, I'm done, it's not happening anymore. Part of cleansing my life is acknowledging that I don't have room for everybody and if they're not going to be nice and positive, constructive or helpful, then they don't deserve to be here and, in some way, they don't really want to be here so, thanks for everything you taught me and goodbye...

// Quizá o quizá no esté citando la primera temporada de Gossip Girl... Honestamente, no me importa porque este mensaje es lo suficientemente poderoso para soportar la crítica. Eventos recientes me han llevado a elegir "limpieza" como el tema de Mayo; la vida funciona en formas misteriosas y, de alguna forma, encuentra la forma de poner todo en su lugar ¿saben? La gente viene y va, los dejas entras, a veces se quedan porque lo merecen, a veces porque lo fuerzan. He estado lidiando con la segunda.

No estás hecho para complacer a todo el mundo y el 99% del tiempo, deberías ponerte en primer lugar, como prioridad. La vida me ha enseñado que no puedes salvar a nadie y no es tu misión resolverle la vida a los demás. Me he dado cuenta, más recientemente que antes, que tengo mucha gente en mi vida en la que no puedo apoyarme, que constantemente me usan y abusan de mí... He sido un poco más vocal al respecto en estos días y creo que no les está gustando mucho escucharlo; puedo darme cuenta que me están empujando porque no les digo lo que quieren oír y ¿saben qué? Está bien.

No necesito a alguien en mi vida que no quiera estar ahí. Estoy cansado de gastar energía y pensamientos en personas que no valen la pena: si no te caigo bien, si no te gusta cómo hago las cosas, entonces eres bienvenido a marcharte. Parte de limpiar mi vida se trata de reconocer que no tengo espacio para todos y que si no van a ser buenos y positivos, constructivos o de ayuda, entonces no se merecen estar aquí y, en cierta forma, realmente no quieren estar aquí, así que, gracias por todo lo que me enseñaron y hasta luego...
Love always,
Henry.
