Not everyone who approaches you desires your friendship. And not every opportunity missed is a total failure on your part. Beware fake friends. Beware the fools gold.

I’m in favor of discriminating against assholes who really don’t care about me as a person. It’s my life. I have a right to boot people out if they’re not treating me with respect.

And so do you. It’s your life. You have a right to discriminate against assholes. I know discrimination is an icky word these days. But if you don’t hold the quality of your relationships to a higher standard, your happiness, your health, your schedule — somebody else will manage these things. And that’s no way to live.

Grant nobody permission to treat you like silly putty.
