Michelle Obama's Advice for Women on Relationships

Advice for women on relationships with spouses and with each other: "Do not bring people in your life who weigh you down. And trust your instincts ... good relationships feel good. They feel right. They don't hurt. They're not painful. That's not just with somebody you want to marry, but it's with the friends that you choose. It's with the people you surround yourselves with. And that's just as important as the school that you choose. Who's in your life, and do you respect them, and do they respect you? And are you respecting them. Right?
"And we as women in particular—and this is such an important message—starting today, you all have to be supportive of each other. You can't be jealous, and push and trip, you know? It's hard enough."

"Do not bring people in your life who weigh you down."  Very important advice from the First Lady.  We've all heard it said in many different ways but no matter how you say it, it's true.  I learned that lesson later in life, I wish I would have learned it sooner.  I'm doing my best now to keep negativity away from me because it's no one else's life but mine.  And I'm living it.  I'm doing what makes me happy and I don't care what anyone else thinks because at the end of the day I'm the one that has to look at myself in the mirror, I'm the one that pays my bills, and I'm the one that takes care of me.
