At the beginning of every new year, everyone quietly wishes to have a year of happiness, a year with less negativity, and a year that's hopefully better than the last one. When you want to have a year where you're finally at the top of your list of priorities, it's also important for you to prioritize the kind of people you spend your time with. As you stand at the beginning of a new year, staring down at the many months to follow, don't hesitate to say f^#k *ff to those people in your life who aren't worth it. It's not your job to please anyone and especially these 7 people. 

1. People who call themselves "friends" but act like leeches

The most dangerous person in your life is not your enemy; it's the person who pretends to be your friend but your best interests are never on their mind. This year, you're leaving behind all those people who pull all the energy out of you and leave you feeling drained. Imagine the endless possibilities that this year could bring you when you no longer have to worry about being sucked into their drama, negativity, and selfish motives.

2. People who always make themselves the center of attention

Remember all those hours you spent listening to them, validating them, and trying to fix the endless list of problems in their lives? When you're around them, it's always about them and never about you. But not anymore. There's no reason why you need to spend your precious time coddling someone who can't get a grip over their feelings when they don't give a single thought to the problems that you might be going through. 

3. People who say one thing and then do something else behind your back

It's easy to trust someone by the things they do when you're physically around. But can you count on them the same way when your back is turned? You are tired of people whose actions don't match their words. There may have been times where you were hurt by unfulfilled promises, times where you were left waiting for people who said they would show up but didn't.
