Remove materialistic people from your life! I know several materialistic people. It's kind of sad that material things rule their life. My car is faster, my house is bigger, my boat is better. Always trying to out-do the other person. I picture that life like being on a hamster wheel. You can never catch up. Cause unless you're Bill Gates, it's futile.
People who are: willing ignorant, dramatic, making me question their loyalty, only wanting small talk.needing constant attention, trolls, using me, angry, not willing to put their work in our relationship, not willing to admit when wrong, etc.
Users and Takers are a bummer but a part of life.... Lower your expectations and you'll never be disappointed with the negative aspects of human nature. Stay true to your goodness anyway. Good actions manifest into good lives...
Material things don’t matter. Don’t chase the money. Catch up to the ideas and activities that make you come alive. Go for the things of greater value – the things money can’t buy. What matters is having strength of character, an honest heart, and a sense of self-worth. If you’re lucky enough to have any of these things, never sell them. Never sell yourself short. - via: http://www.marcandangel.com/2013/11/24/7-reasons-to-stop-proving-yourself-to-everyone-else/
