These Are the People You Don't Need in Your Life

Not everyone needs to stay if you want to move forward.

"Letting go means to come to the realization that some people are a part of your history, but not a part of your destiny." —Steve Maraboli
 
People come into our lives and sometimes they decide to stay. We make friends, enter relationships, and get acquainted with people who we think are good for us. Unfortunately, these people may not always be the 'right' people, not for certain purposes/roles, but they just aren't generally good for us. There are people who hinder us from reaching new heights, from growing into better individuals. And often times, the best thing to do is to let these people go.
 
You don't need the people who tell you that your dreams are not valid. Having them around to constantly tell you this will only allow this thought to become a fact inside your head. 
 
You don't need the people who want you to become something else. Let them embrace you for who you are, quirks and all. This is not their life to shape—it is completely yours.
 
You don't need the people who cannot see your worth. These people will always put their achievements over yours, and anything you do will be nothing to them. There is simply no reason to keep them around.
 
You don't need the people who only speak to you when they need something. Even if they shower you with the warmest smiles and the most flowery adjectives, these people will never see beyond your "helping hands." They will never see the gem that lies beneath.
 
You don't need the people who criticize you for irrelevant things. Friendly teasing is okay, but if these people always tell you to do something this way or to do that another way, then it's best to kick them out.
 
You don't need the people who treat you only as a step toward their success. They are leeches, and no one likes leeches. Never allow anyone to gain from your efforts.

You don't need the people who would replace you in an instant. These are the ones who view you as temporary, as disposable. You shouldn't be anyone's second option or backup plan.
 
These people may have entered your life, but you have no obligation to keep them if you see that they're only pushing you down. You will never find true happiness if these people keep following you. It is not your job to give them a happier, better life, and thinking about your well-being first does not make you selfish.
 
You simply do not need toxic people in your life if you want to grow.

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song

By: CJ Reyno

Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?

Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.

You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.

As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”

I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
