When I was seven or eight Id had a fight with some friend of mine who was just being rude. Id explained this to my mother, I was crying, I was really upset and she just shrugged and told me this.
It never occurred to me that I could have that type of attitude about people being really shitty to you. She always told me as a kid and as a grown up, while she was still around, that you need to surround yourself with positive people. Its important to be with people who lift you up.
And anybody whos going to treat you badly, and make you sad ah, to hell with them.
I still think of that every day. Its very relevant in my life every day.
