Before you invest your time and effort make sure that you're dedicating it to a worthy cause. Everyone and thing is not deserving of your presence and contributions. It is never too late to reevaluate whether or not to rescind those offerings. Remind yourself often that you are responsible for your own well-being. Sometimes that requires sacrificing cherished relationships and places or things you hold fond memories of. It is likely that it will pain you to separate yourself, but tranquility awaits you. Try not to lose sight of your ultimate goal and continue to set the bar high for yourself.
