put yourself first

You can't make every single person happy, whether they are strangers or friends. It's impossible, not to mention draining. If you keep putting everyone else before you, you will lose sight of your own happiness. Your happiness should be number one because it's your life.

Not every decision is going to gain you friends, but not every decision will create enemies. Just decide for you. Stop looking over your shoulder to see what others' reactions are going to be. Life throws choices at us every day and we have to make them for ourselves. Ultimately, they lead us in the direction we are supposed to go, whether it's smooth or bumpy with lessons.

Just remember, it's okay to be a little selfish. You may not end up with everyone or everything you started out with. You'll end up with the people who stuck by you, or new ones you met along the way. You'll end up with what you need.

Just trust
Trust your heart. Trust your instinct. Trust your gut. 
Listen to all three, and proceed as you so choose.
