Life will always have its ups and downs.
What we can control, however, is how much of a downer we can be to others.
Personally, I get tired real quick of people who:
1) Live their lives at the expense of someone else's self respect.
2) People who seem to see happiness as equal to material wealth.
3) Individuals who like to blame everyone else for their own sorry lives.
And when faced with such people in social networks, I find the urge to shut them up or silence their feed to be tremendously strong. However, I understand many of such people thrive on attention. And even more, on attention that they can use to snag their talons in deeper.
So yeah, choose what affects your life well.
And know when just ignoring them can be much more powerful than having to deal with them directly.
