Hello guys, Gent here. First off, I want to take a moment to humbly thank each and every one of you who has donated money within the past couple of weeks now! It truly has meant a lot to me and my friends that have collaborated on these past donation packs. For that, you have my eternal gratitude. (:
With all of that said, I have been thinking quite a bit these past couple of weeks. This week especially since I'll be turning 23 years old this Friday on September 19th.
With such a passage of time, and with recent events that have concerned good friends of mine, I have been thinking about people I have met throughout my life so far that have end up being "that type of person". You know:
-The person that ends up being a rather moronic individual who not only causes wrongs but also fails to see the wrongs of his or her actions.
- The person that ends up trying to be your friend just to say, "yeah, I know that guy, he's quite well-known" and such.
- The person that gets needlessly angry at others when those others have done nothing wrong (for example: failing to respond to a message and "that person" becomes a needlessly bitter and filled with hatred because of it).
- And, basically, the person that pretty much feels neither remorse nor expresses concern for your individual.
We're always going to meet people like this - it's a part of nature. People are varied and, unfortunately, there are going to be jerks and the like out there. People that can abuse us artists quite a bit, too. But with that said, if you do ever meet a person like this, then you have every single right to walk away from such toxic people.
I guess a felt a strong need to type/underline that portion because I recall seeing a post somewhere (most likely Tumblr) where someone said it's not easy to leave toxic relationships. And with that, I give the amazing and totally sophisticated reply of
If you feel like you're being hazed, tormented, or being made depressed by a specific individual, then please -- cut them out of your life. People always tell me that at times I need to be a bit more selfish. They say I try to look out for others' happiness too much that I sometimes forget that I also need to make myself happy. And you know what? You do, too. You all do. You all owe it to yourselves to make yourself happy. And if there is an individual that is preventing you from doing so, then just walk away.
I think I'll keep the journal as short as it. No need to go further and ramble on some more, haha. I just hope a lot of these words will be taken to heart. After all -- you deserve to NOT be in toxic relationships.
Keep it cool till next time, mates.
