“You don't realize how much energy a negative person is sucking away from you until they're no longer there. If you have that one 'friend' who gives you backhanded compliments or is jealous every time you achieve something, it's time to tell them that their actions hurt you. If they don't do anything to change, get the heck out of there and start living your best life. NOW.”
