Decisions can either make or mar one’s life or at least a phase of one’s life. I have taken a lot of decisions that were either propitious to my life or were pernicious to it. However, one decision that I believe has contoured and streamlined my life significantly to sail through the inhibitions and impediments that I once encountered in life was to break all the ties from every iniquitous or negative people that I once bore in my life.
At times, devious and conniving people tend to plot against you with a Janus-faced. You tend to get puzzled owing to their abilities to enshroud their true soul. I have had a couple of people in my life who I thought were my friends. Regardless, once I realised that the people around me were pretentious and phoney, I decided to extirpate them. It happened during my college days after I had a few heartbreaking experiences.
Initially, calling upon that decision was never easy as it takes a lot of guts to collect the enthusiasm to gush the truth out and directly take up a call. However, once I started keeping all of them aside, life became more effortless and without complications and hassles.
I believe one must not waste one’s time figuring out a way to avoid an unwarranted situation. Instead, one should uproot them at once as such people or entities are not indispensable and are rather minacious to one’s life and well being. My life became relatively easy and I could focus more upon the things that matter in all aspects of life. I am glad I took that decision and will continue to follow the same practice as I genuinely believe our life is too short to be wasted on the negativities and wicked entities.
Eg.: Your parents are happy that the decision you took was propitious to your life.

Eg.: I was extremely puzzled after knowing that I had been appointed as a captain.
Meaning: planning against someone
Eg.: They connived against Julius Caesar and murdered him.
Eg.: This hooliganism and rude behaviour are minacious.
