Am I Depressed or Just Surrounded by Wrong People?

When you are diagnosed with depression or low-self esteem, Just make sure you are not surrounded by ass holes. When I saw this quote on a friend’s Facebook wall I laughed out loud with delight and recognition. It hit me on a subconscious level. Why did I like it so much? It was the kind of reason behind many past problems. But I did like it! A lot! It was strong enough to write a blog about it which some others will also like it And I started asking myself, what happened actually?

I started thinking of my own life experience. It’s better to be alone, than to have a bad companion. Surround yourself with great people and you will never be lonely. How many times did the behavior of others effect how I felt about myself? How many times did I have to leave relationships because of the damage they were doing to my self-esteem?

I was exposed repeatedly to wrong, which caused a wear on my self-esteem. I am a person who is reared to be nice. People thinks that all friends are friends. But, in fact those friends surround you now is just your temporary friend especially they get something from you. But you can really know who your real friends in time of troubles and sorrows. You can even count in your right hand fingers only.

For me realization came when I got a job that forced me to stay away from these people. Some incidences also proved that they ditched me because they can’t gain control over me any more & I shouldn't let me come back again.The best cures in life are to either surround yourself with people that bring you up, or to lose all the people that bring you down. Gain the good, lose the bad, and what not.

Little by little I realized I was actually happy, despite the low-pay job. Then I just stopped even trying to deal with them and contact them at all. They weren't too attentive anyway, so my guess is they probably stopped. I got a call once and then I haven't made contact again since till date, it been ages now.
