I can't stress enough how important it is to be kind and soft, even to people you think are not worth it, because they probably need your kindness the most. It's not being weak. It actually takes more strength to stay kind hearted and love everyone for their differences and despite their flaws.
Forgo the drama. Ignore the negativity around you. Just be sincere and kind, and promote what you love instead of bashing what you hate. - via: http://www.marcandangel.com/2014/04/30/18-reasons-to-give-up-trying-to-live-up-to-everyones-expectations/
Tell everyone you know: My happiness depends on me, so you're off the hook. And then demonstrate it. Be happy, no matter what they're doing. Practice feeling good, no matter what. And before you know it, you will not give anyone else responsibility for the way you feel-and then, you'll love them all. Because the only reason you don't love them, is because you're using them as your excuse to not feel good. ~Esther Hicks
