Sometimes that means removing or leaving friendships, relationships or other people that cause turmoil and drama in our lives. Sometimes that means taking action to improve our living situation, even if that change takes years to reach (like going back to school). In the end, if we are miserable or happy, the solution for adjustment almost always relies on our own actions or inactions. Keep your head on a swivel and stay safe -DeltaWhiskey
