Some people have to go.
We are in a place in life where calling out a person is the key.
People don't get to act a certain way just because.
We are withered to the bone with many types of personalities.
And it is time to free ourselves.
Satan be gone!!
Redditor moosesanddave wanted everyone to divulge truths about those that we are just about over having in our lives. They asked:
"Which types of people are you sick of?"
Letting go of people is hard. But the older I get, the better it feels.

"People take their aggression out on service workers. They're cowards who pick fights with people they know can't stand up for themselves appropriately because it can unfairly lose them their job."
A Punching Bag
"I don't know about the rest of you but for me 90% of the time it is people that use you as a punch bag in their life. They tell you all the stuff and expect some feedback/support back but you will never get anything similar back. They tend to explode at you for a matter that has nothing to do with you but they choose you because they think you are for granted AKA a punch bag."
Let's call her Karen...
"I had a friend like this (let's call her Karen). Super mentally unstable, expected me to come over and listen to her crap at the drop of a hat. The time that truly stands out to me was when I was in the ER with my girlfriend because she'd had a fall and while I'm sitting in the ER, I get a text from Karen asking me to come over because she was needing to have a chat. I tell her I'm in the ER and obviously can't come and her exact words were "all I want is a friend here and you can't even do that for me?"
"I obviously don't reply because f**k that noise. An hour later she sends another text apologizing and saying how she's become "numb to the idea of being in the ER because she has been in there so many times". She eventually removed herself from my life. Good f**king riddance."
"People who gossip and stir the pot. People who loudly proclaim they hate drama and actually cause all the drama. Girls who put women empowering crap all over their social media but are happy to sleep with other girls boyfriends and gossip about them."

"People who can't say that they're sorry or learn from their mistakes, and instead lash out."
Sometimes it's just time to let go...

"People who can't take criticism and try to blame it to someone or something else or entirely change the topic. Weak."
"Toxic positive people."
"I had someone who was fully aware that 2020 was the absolute worst year of my life (and it was pretty sh*t for everyone in general). Despite that he couldn't understand why everyone hated it because he claimed that there were so many games released so it was a good year. Because somehow that was supposed to completely make up for everything that happened that year."
Pass on By...
"People that gatekeep. Music in particular. Yea I'm a guy and i like madonna, I must be a wussy. Then I listen to cannibal corpse and similar death metal, so I must be edgy? I love to hear what others listen to. Almost everytime i ask someone what they like, i look up an album and end up discovering something new, but i try to focus on what I like about it. Music can be a very personal thing to people."
