I’m shutting the door on a lot of people. I always feel like it’s my fault when someone treats me badly and I’m coming to realize that it is because I continue to let them stay in my life. Maybe the first step towards achieving happiness is to stop being a doormat and giving love to people who don’t love me back.
Some situational awareness is the best thing without a lot of training. You’re also much more likely to be assaulted by someone you know. So the nice guy who walks you to your car is more likely to harm you than some mysterious villain.
