Over the past year I have cut all the negative people out of my life. More recently, I’ve really started axing friendships and relationships that cause “drama” or breed negativity. It’s simply not something I want or need around me as I move forward.
Then, this morning. I was notified that somebody I used to be fairly close with has passed away after a lengthy battle with an illness. One of the most positive people I ever had the pleasure of speaking to. We hadn’t spoke since around Christmas. They moved, and we had only corresponded through email. One day, the replies just stopped coming. I didn’t think too much about it at the time, as frequently one of us would take over a week to respond.
Then I got busy with my life. I don’t want to say I forgot, but it did move towards the back of my mind. It sucks.
Today, it is hard to say that life is good. When you eliminate negative people from your life, only to have a shining positive one taken.
