This quote changed my life about a year ago. I was unhealthy, unhappy, and just plain miserable. Then I took this quote to heart. I cannot change other people's behavior, or attitude, or moral compass.... BUT, I can remove from my life those people who drain my energy and bring nothing but negativity. I found the courage to start making those changes for myself, and it has been very difficult at times, but so worth it!!! I feel free, like a weight has been lifted off of me, like a new person. I deliberately choose the people that I surround myself with now. I choose people who fan my flames, encourage me, love me for who I am, and shine a bright light of positivity in my life. I strive to do the same for others. I hope this quote touches you the way it did for me.
