You know what I mean. Unfollow that person on Instagram who makes you mad or jealous or annoyed. Stop reading that blog or that columnist who rubs you up the wrong way. Life is too short.

I love this essay by Nicole Richie, on reclaiming her past, and refusing to be labelled a “former wild child”.
“I was so used to hearing others' views of my life that I found myself believing them. I sat and wondered, Why do I laugh at home, but feel shamed out in the world? With my family and close friends, I am owning my past, relishing in the absurdity, slightly flinching at my own naïveté, and giving myself props for the unabashed bravery that streaked through my youth. But not trying to hide from it, not trying to change it, just allowing it to help propel me forward.”
