DIVERGENT is an action-adventure movie about a world where people are divided into distinct factions based on human virtues. Eurdite - the intelligent that must wear blue for stress relief. They sit staring at computers all day, Abnegation who do community service and are against vanity, Dauntless who are the brave, crazy strong protectors of the safety fence making sure no one gets in or out and wear black along with tattoos, Amity who are peaceful and trusting, and Candor who are the most honest who wear black and white. 

Then there is one more that is called the Factionless. Most are found to be Divergent. They are given the jobs of trash collecting, making garments, construction and so forth. They live in trash filled subways or other unclean areas and are given food and clothing for their work. They mix clothing from all the other factions. 

Tris Prior chooses Dauntless from Abnegation and during testing it's revealed she is Divergent meaning doesn't fit into just one area. she discovers a conspiracy by a faction leader to kill all Divergent and destroy the Abnegation faction.

There is a lot to the movie based on the best selling book and the ending definitely gives hint of a sequel. I'd give it about 3 1/2 stars only because of some scenes left you asking why bother but in all it was worth watching.

For fun which Faction are you?  I got Dauntless.  Faction

It's OK to Let Go Of a Relationship Gone

Do you cringe when a person who you once thought of as a friend calls, texts, emails, or stops by? Do you want to go on with your life without them?

Sometimes people come into your life for a season and even that season can be unseasonably erratic. When you know you are ready to move on yet have guilt or want to avoid a scene, just remember it's OK to walk away for your own emotional health.

Many factors could have led up to the ending for you. Opening your eyes and seeing the differences in interest, morals, or other life values or just one of those things where chemistry just isn't there.

Can you honestly say you love him/her? Are you comfortable sharing your life news good or bad? Are your visits shared or one sided? Do you come away from a conversation with him or her feeling happy? If no, it's time to let go.

How do you let go peacefully? Some people, especially those that thrive on drama will not take it well. If you want to avoid a scene, slowly back away. Don't answer emails, text, or phone calls. When invited to an event, say you are unable to make it and not offer an explanation. When someone asks you why they are looking for an opening to argue with you and talk you into what they want. Instead, repeat you are unable to make it. If he or she picks a fight then you can then answer you have grown apart and wish them well but at this stage of your life you need to move on and thank him/her for the friendship that you did have. Say good-bye and hang up.

It's your life and you do what makes you happy. Never stay in any situation or relationship out of guilt.
