Not all toxic people are cruel and uncaring. Some of them love us dearly. Many of them have good intentions. Most are toxic to our being simply because their needs and way of existing in the world force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness. They aren’t inherently bad people, but they aren’t the right people for us. And as hard as it is, we have to let them go. Life is hard enough without being around people who bring you down, and as much as you care, you can’t destroy yourself for the sake of someone else. You have to make your wellbeing a priority. Whether that means breaking up with someone you care about, loving a family member from a distance, letting go of a friend, or removing yourself from a situation that feels painful — you have every right to leave and create a safer space for yourself.
Sometimes you don’t know you don’t like someone until you’ve been around them for a while.
I don’t want her around me anymore,a friend. She’s just really annoying. She never stops. I allowed her to crash here for one night but it’s almost a week now and she’s still here. The first night, I sacrificed my sleep by giving her my bed knowing she’ll be out first thing in the morning but obviously, I was wrong.She wanted me to sleep beside her and to keep the lights on at the same time; I wanted to disagree on both but as a host, I needed to be extra nice so I chose to keep the lights on instead of sleeping beside her as a last bargain. I didn’t agree on the former because i really don’t sleep with girls,if you get my drift. and she really grosses me out. I mean, i’m not really a big Hugger or a kisser even to my closest friends but she constantly insists on doing such things.She’s just too clingy and irritating. She’s too loud and she never stops talking. She speaks more words per minute than i speak in a day.She demands a lot of things,a continuous convo for example. And i really hate being told what to do. I’m the kind of person who wants to be left alone sometimes; “No, I’m not angry, no I’m not sad,i just want to be alone”, I told her Wednesday. You might think I’m being rude,but she’s just too much and it’s really tiring. I can’t stand her. I’m usually patient with other people but not with her, she’s the exception to the general rule. Plus, she called demi lovato fat.
*I’m not really sure what a good person is, exactly.It could be someone who always plays by the rules or or maybe someone who’s always doing good things for other people. That sure isn’t me. Not that i’m a bitch or anything;it’s just that other people aren’t always my main priority in life, pestering friends included.
Sand Sculptors of Durban:
"Most often spotted alongside the pier, armed only with a spade, their hands and imagination, the sand-artists spend their days creating marvellous works of art for public admiration in the hopes of a steady stream of donations as this is often their only means of survival. Passers-by sometimes offer extra money so they can be photographed with these works of art, some of which can take up to a week to complete depending on size and detail, only to be destroyed in minutes.
So why do their creators make them? Some of these guys are homeless teenagers - sculpting often means they don’t have to go to bed on an empty stomach. For others, the money they make is used to travel to and from home, or to pay for shelter for the night.” (Source)
