You can not just let the same people knock you down over and over again. It does not matter who they are. You need to surround yourself with only those who allow you to be yourself and enjoy life while you are living even if that means that you will be alone. It is better to be swimming alone then surrounded by sharks. Your four walls within your home can withstand the "Big Bad World" we live in as long as you stand strong and not let the "Big Bad Wolves" that knock on your door inside. Don't invite trouble into your life and you will have less trouble to deal with.
