Choose the right people! If you are the smartest person in your group, then you are in the wrong group! Make it a habit of being elevated and elevating others! A time and place for every thing and every one!
If someone seems to not care about hurting your feelings - you can decide to forgive them. Move on because any grudges you carry will hurt you more than them. Use that energy to plan and prepare for the life you want to live and dream of. Remember this...you will want forgiveness too one day. Don't let the little things hold you down or make you always upset.
