I've learned that when you accept what is and what is not while looking at the bigger picture, you will be much happier in life. If it was something you wouldn't put up with or didn't think you could overcome, you wouldn't have signed up in the first place.
This could be the relationships you have in life, a job or just any decisions you make in life. When you truly understand the meaning of a friend, you'll realize that hanging out with people who may not be a real friend is an acceptance on your end, You have signed-up for their negativity, jealousy and carelessness because you either value spending time with other people over positivity in your life or you are hoping to build their character as a result of the wisdom you provide them.
Think about why you sign-up for things in your life and their overall value. Is the reason you sign-up for something worth accepting everything that comes along with it or are you actually losing more than you gain? Stop signing up for what is doing more harm to your life than good and start accepting what you sign up for. We have a choice in everything we do and we have to realize that nothing is perfect and we can always walk away from something that is not good for us at anytime even though it seems like we cannot.
