"One of the best things I've ever did"
How I did it: This was a goal I started a few months before I joined 43things.com. It sounds mean, but I needed to navigate away from the people who want to be mean, spread hate, use you, or just live to bring you down. I slowly just walked away from those. I still do it now if I have to.
Lessons & tips: I found it a bit tougher online. If you just remove them from a friends list, they often ask why. If your honest, they get mad, it felt like a no win situation. I didn't want drama, I just wanted to be at peace and know that those around me treat me as a friend, as I would treat them, and surround myself with people who chose more positive traits.
I found I had to use the block button for awhile when needed. Sometimes you just have to walk away for yourself.
Resources: More than anything, just the need and want to be surrounded by peaceful, happy people. It was more of a personal decision I made rather than a resource that helped me. Sometimes they still try to contact me, I will be kind, but I stand my ground. Its helped my stress level a lot, ect.
