Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

stop letting people walk all over me

i have been used all my life by friends. and i let them do it. i was the substitute friend. i never said anything because i’m a pleaser. I want everyone to like me. i lived my life for other people and it wore me down. its exhausting.

FINALLY i discarded all the people that were bringing me down. and it felt amazing.

my advice…you have to realize that your own happiness comes first. you have to live for you.
don’t get me wrong…i haven’t turned into like a psycho bitch that goes around telling everyone off…

but if i see that im not getting treated right by the people who are supposed to care the most…i walk. and thats that. no more bullshit. no more second chances. i dont need that in my life.

and if you try to leave friends and they give you this “youll be sorry” bullshit like theyre the last people on the face of the earth and without them youre nothing. you can tell them to shove it.
because without those people…i’m the happiest i’ve ever been.

good luck to all of you who are still struggling with this.
its hard. but in the end soo worth it.


you are right

if people think i am a bitch, yes! so?
I don’t care
I just need my crew of friends
those who bs me, who think i am nasty
they ain’t worth a second for me to think about them
there are million of people who would love me for what i am
so for those who hate me
keep hating

Boogie_Shoes has gotten 3 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
