One day it all makes perfect sense... Life is short and being happy has less to do with the "things" you accumulate along your journey. What is most important are the people we surround ourselves with while on that journey. You may not have control over who you are related to but you certainly are in charge of those you keep close. You are a brand! And if those individuals don't represent the brand, there is no reason to have them included in your bigger picture of being happy.
