At 45, I’m past having to explain myself or justify my life to anyone. There are so few people who have any right to make assumptions about me and any aspect of my life. There’s a saying about getting your own house in order and more people ought to consider the dysfunctional lives that they are living before passing comment on me or my relationship. 

I’ve given too much of my time, love, energy and hard-earned money to undeserving, selfish and ungrateful people and will most definitely be focussing on myself first and on my own personal happiness, which includes, like it or not, my future with my longterm, loving partner. 
 Will I ever learn to really let go of the negative people? I need to learn this lesson now or the universe will keep sending me this lesson! 

Before I say goodbye, let me leave you with something to contemplate:

WHICH WOULD YOU RATHER BE? Someone who causes happiness wherever they go or someone who causes happiness WHEN they go…?!!!
